Surf Fishing

Today we were on the beach for the fifteen minutes of sunshine that we've been having each day. We spent a pleasant afternoon surf fishing, but didn't bring in anything for supper.  Surf fishing differs from sitting on the beach because of the possibilities. My observations:

Weather on paper
Weather outside our window.
Not at all the same.

The pleasures of surf fishing:
Sitting still and waiting
Looking toward the vast
empty sea and sky
Worries of life behind me.
Waiting, not in idleness
but with hope and expectation
The music of the surf filling me
Thinking of no more than
 the shape and color of surf foam.
In the stillness finding creation.

Seagull and Me

Wait resolutely
Good morsels will be coming
To the patient ones.
