Hope on the Line


Hoping for rain
is like stream fishing—
wading into hip-deep water,
flicking a wide arc through the air

tipped with  hope on the hook
and in the line tied to it—
the one you reel in,
even without a catch.

“It got away?”

You know better,
waiting with net and umbrella.


Poems in the series “Waiting for Rain” are still in process, now appearing only here on this blog.
