Rtfm 25 A Fishing Story

Freed from focus thoughts slide by
A swift and dark flowing river
White waters eddies and whirlpools
A poet plucks treasures from the stream
Like a bear catching leaping salmon
And points to the ones that got away

This fdeserves a much better rating than currently. A great poem about the poetry process itself. - chuck
Good poem, Stewart. It would be much better if you worked on the punctuation and grammar- nitpicking I know. I struggle with them too
swift sparkling water splashes its way down the river the way grandad sings away his blues each night in his bath
