the fisher man

i have only a mouth to feed,

i need no nets.

the deep blue sea is full of schools

but i seek only one fish.

the rare "golden one".

i knew of one,

my boat was stirred towards it.

Another has snatched it.

"celui qui ne risque rien,n'a rien"

the french man said.

i have devoured all sorts

from pirranas to salmons


i have understood

not all are to be eaten and all  differ in taste.

my quest to the unknown continues.

with wisdom ,i will taste  that golden fish.

Author's Notes:


"celui qui ne risque rien,n'a rien": him who does not risk ,has nothing

Yes, that one 'golden fish' has to be that one special woman you will forever spend you life with. Don't accept less that what your heart is set on. This is a brilliant write. Cadi
