Fishing For A Friend - Poem by omar ibrahim

when you go to fish
go fishing for the finest kind
which good anglers always do.

if you're looking for a fine fish
you must choose the purest lake
in which good anglers fish.

if you catch a fine fish
try not to let it get away
good anglers real them in.

you must bring your fish home
a fine fish will quench your hunger
after a long day fishing.

(January,2010, Omar Ibrahim)

    ‘good anglers’ [good soul] /‘purest lake’ [good thoughts] /‘fine fish’ [the goal] /‘quench your hunger’…[contentment]

    I find a deep message …contemplative poem…not just fishing…[vide supra]

    I liked this poem a lot........nice line structure, nice use of metaphor. one must always choose a good friend, and that too from a good lot. You must keep to them, for they fill you with all joy... the message was very well conveyed. the poem was also short, which made it more good..since most thoughts come more power-packed and solid in short poems...great thought, well expressed...the fishing work was also felt and it lent a light feel to the poem..GREAT! !
