Written for:  Carpe Diem #960, Fishing

Today our prompt is fishing and the first thing which came in mind was a haiku by Chiyo-Ni, a follower of Basho.

tsurizao no ito ni sawaru ya natsu no tsuki

it touches the line
of my fishing pole –
this summer moon

Here is my attempt:

fish are not biting
he packs his things, bad day
fish are laughing

I am a freelance poet, born and bred in Brooklyn, New York. I live with my husband, John, and two charming rescue dogs–Marion Miller and Murphy. We spent eight lovely years in Portland, OR, but are now back in New York. My goal is to create and share poetry with others who write, or simply enjoy reading poetry. I hope to touch a nerve in you, and feel your sparks as well.
