...who are not to be
RE: "Fishing or stoking smoldering embers?" You like that fishing analogy, don't you?
Here's the story on that, T -- if I fish I intend to catch. The fish that are impossible to catch are those in deep, cold, safe, featureless water. All fish have to decide where they are going to swim -- in weedy, warm, structure-laden, wind-tossed, lily-padded, nourishing, vulnerable waters -- or that other stuff.]
[That's my poetic narrative for the day.]
RE: Your poetic narrative
I swim in weedy vulnerable waters, not the deep or cold
Tossed by currents to and fro; must be a sight to behold!
Wending through softly bowing weeds trying to avoid
Your baited hook yet growing ever hungrier
With each peek and poke into my nook.
Thus if you decide to fish and catch - (you will)
In what waters will we swim to stay alive until
You decide to keep or release your limit?
And of the fish you choose to keep, I wonder
If one might have my heart in it?
Going out on a limb here.....food for thought or file #13?
