Super Saturday – A Super Menu :)

For dVerse Poetics, today, we are writing to the magical surreal artwork of Catrin Welz-Stein

The ‘ONE’ that Got Away

He stood high up in his own
little world
The same endless waters all
around him
A dreary job was his, indeed – a
lonely life
With a fishing rod instead of a
wife.
He cast a line down each day
His catch – well, let us say
He was not what they call a
master baiter
His line cast, he recalled the
days and ways
He had spent to bait the elusive
her
Then, as now, he had looked the
wrong way
Hoping to catch a mermaid
When a prize catch was lured to
his bait.
He felt a tug (at his heart), he
looked
Saw the missed prize swimming
away
Took his bait (heart) too, yes,
she did..
Here’s to ‘mistakes make him a
better man’

Ducks, Sailing Races, Scout Meetings etc.
