Hugging the shoreline with anchor full stay,

Watching the sunrise on this perfect day,

Reflections of light dance wildly around,

Slapping the water not making a sound.


You throw in your line, you sit there and wait,

You’ve planned out your day, you’ve plenty of bait,

The weather is perfect the sky so blue,

No clouds up above, to obstruct the view.


You look and listen, for some little sign,

For a pull or tug on your fishing line,

The upside down smile – no longer a frown.


Your reel now spinning, you grab for a net,

You know a huge fish is getting you wet,

You think of it filling your frying pan,

You’ve truly become a real fisherman.

I believe the compilation of our time spent with God will have huge affect on the way we live. I know I'm a sinner and I need a Savior. I have One through Jesus, Christ. My book, "Stages - a memoir," is about the seven stages of life from the perspective of a woman. It addresses all the things girls and women go through in life as they travel it with Jesus, and it is available on

  1. I felt like I was truly fishing with the two of you. I haven’t fished much since my boyhood years, but Paul’s colorful artwork and your rhyme-filled poem brought back some memories.
