Opened life’s palm

To minutely observe

Its meandering lifeline


Patient sportsman

Seated at water’s edge

Dangling fishing line


Live hand, bated breath

Aligning angled line hooked

With squiggly dead/live bait


Life oozed(ing) out of bait

Lures live fish to assuage

Hunger at cost of own life


Hunter quarry attached

Invisibly at two ends

Of a meandering lifeline


Destiny~ the ultimate fisherman

Patiently dangling hook line

Sinker, to snag life one last time
