Pulling up Perch

Timeless
Childhood allure
Casting lines into the deep azure

Tethered 
Finger to a string
Whiskered blind for signs of living things

Hopeful 
Endless waiting search
Setting the hook and pulling up perch 

Vivid
Scales exposed to sun
Alien to air means summer fun

Memoir
Universal joy
Fishing is a passage right for boy

Three Word Wednesday offered these:  allure, perch, vivid

  1. Loved how each verse tied into fishing

    You have me thinking about the various meanings of memoir

    as an aside--love the music and usually find music interferes with my focus

  2. Glad you could enjoy, happier still to leave you thinking. The song is "Call Me Son", which I wrote for that fella at the business end of the fishing pole in the photo. There's a future blog on that...

  3. This certainly brings back many a memory for me. Great stuff.

  4. I didn't fish often as a child, but the times I did, it was marvellous. You reminded me of those times.
