Deep water poetry

Its calmer in the shallows
is advice from old men
whose idle pursuit
is carving sticks
in the shade
of softwood trees
one by one
waiting for God

Just dive in boy
lunge that spirit
out beyond
the hooks and line
deep water poetry
oil fired rhymes
rollicking times
and when they hang you
out to dry
as is the want
of mercurial spirits
just laugh with the Gods

Very nice inspired inspiration Oceanzest. When you dive deep into poetry you have to have all your swimming gear ready to explore the unknown. Thanks for sharing. SM writing
