hopeful angler

tears stream like fishing lines
plunging into unknown depths.
beshadowed angler,
early rising and wading deadly waters
witnessing the miracle of dawn,
wet-footed angler,
cold and shivering and
hopeful for a bite,
how long will you stay at this,
your tears streaming like fishing lines,
the steam of the morning rising from the waters,
mingling with salt and sweat,
hopeful angler,
unaware angler,
casting in dead seas.
