It was a hot summer day when a poem snagged my line

it was dangling by a hook as it spun through my mind

I tugged and pulled, reaching for paper and pen

to capture each word as I reeled the big one in

but it came in no order and flopped about

slipping through my fingers as I began to doubt

if the poem was a keeper or a throwaway,

but capture and release is the practice of the day

so I gave the fish a kiss and watched it swim away

now it can grow bigger to be caught another day!

  1. Am I to think you let a poem get away? Good catch, Sue.
    Suddenly the song Mack the Knife is playing in my head (Oh, the shark, babe, has such teeth, dear
    And it shows them pearly white….). Wonderful poet’s poem.
