The Floating Fisher

The Floating Fisher

The angler glides
with patience and pace
along the Santa Barbara coast
He navigates his kayak
as the orange orb rises
from the horizon
He floats in a misty stillness,
and paddles in peace

His morning routine
keeps his attention
and hopes to snag a crab or two
at the bottom of the net

The long fishline
wrinkles in the water,
pelicans and dolphins
follow in a salty sea of bliss
As he passes the bobbing buoy,
it speaks in gentle whispers,
cautions the floating fisher
not to drift too far from shore.
