Fisherman

Poem By RAVIKIRAN ARAKKAL

He took off ina small boat
With a single oar and a net
To venture into the sea,
To catch the flowers of the sea,
Fish in plenty, in his net
Went deep and far from the shore
Getting hsi boat tumbled
Up and down driving hard
Against the wind and waves
In the great silence of seas
Passing by staring barracudas
Whales, sharks, unafraid
Stopping in the mid ocean,
To spread his net, catching
A netful produce of the sea
Filling, brimming his boat,
Lolling in the waves,
Returning to the shore
In great happiness, to meet
His loved ones, leaving
The orange skyline on course
To the shallow waters
In front of his humble hut.
