You Snooze - You Lose

Pristine the cliff side slide
Above this ledge the eagles glide
Down here along the silent stream
The fishing lures they shine, they gleam

Beside the shady stump we bide
Rock shelving hide
We seek
We spied

You and I, we vie
Glass eyed
You and I, we vie

Sage gulch staging pit
Cutthroats hotel, our netting knit
Murky doorways ooze
Slick & slimy moss, it moves, it grooves

Bugs dance
Lines cast
Fish scheme
We dream

You and I, we vie

Hi Susan,

I love your imagery!! You use words to spin spells and paint the greatest pictures.... And then at the end your dedication! I picture two 10 year olds out fishing, looking like old salty cutthroats, stalking innocent, unsuspecting bass!! LOL!!
Thank you!

What a great time to read this as we are spending the weekend at the lake house. Hope the fish are biting! This was really cute and I enjoyed it a lot! It has been a while, but I'm glad to read your work again! Anthony
