Around the Bay

aroundthebay

Bats over black water
the moon casts an eerie glow
lakeflies hum their song

***

Coming in from fishing
better to say nothing ‘bitin’
than admit being skunked.

***

When the lights went out
the last piece of cake was gone
and the boy missing.

***

Easy to be a stone
harder to ba a river
held in place by rocks.

***

Skunked, the ol’ man says
but tomorrow’s another day
he says and we nod.

***

Fishinh in the bay
Lake Winnebago rollers
reach the frothy shore.
