The Catch of the Day

Do you like to fish? Do you like to write poems? You might be interested in the following article that caught my eye recently:

For a Weekend, Fishermen Measure Haul in Verse

For all the people out there that think poetry is a frou frou art all about love and flowers, think again. Poetry is what you make it - and some people make it about fishing. The annual Fisher Poets Gathering is, well, exactly that.

From the website:

"Fisher Poetry" comes from experiences living and working in the industry, and ranges in writing style from fast-moving rhyming couplets to crafted free verse or literary prose, and includes poems, songs, short stories, personal memoirs and essays, along with art.

Just goes to prove that you can write poetry about anything - even fish.

Thanks for reading!
