Casting

Casting

Watching waves crest and fall
we, surfing down from summer’s summit,
cast our time-worn nets,
catching fleeting dreams before they slip
and enfold into deep waters,
before they meld into sandy shore.

    Beautiful, Anna. Very Romantic in imagery.

  2. Lovely short poem that says a lot about ‘seizing the day’ before our dreams fade away. Beautiful!

    Beautiful poem. I took from this the skill of preserving a love into old age like the couple in the picture have done is to grab with both hands the opportunities and dreams as they prevent themselves, and enjoy your final ride from “summer’s summit” into your Autumns and, finally, your Winter graves. The willingness to still, at that age, to cast their “time-worn nets” into the sea of dreams is testament to the strength of their love. Fantastic lesson in so few lines. Thank you.
