Let’s Go Fishing, Shadorma

I don’t know where the time goes… Here it is Sunday, and I’m just now finding the time to write my poem for #TankaTuesday. The challenge was to write a shadorma poem using three to five of the words provided on the list on the challenge post HERE.

        1. I’ve never been fishing in the ocean, but I can only imagine. When I was a child, we took a clipper across Lake Michigan from Milwaukee to Michigan. I got seasick!! I totally agree with you. LOL!

          1. That Lake Michigan is a beast! I thought it would be calm since it’s a lake. I booked a kayaking trip with my son when we went up there and became very seasick. Never again! Lol!

  1. Over by us there’s a three fish a day rule in some of the waterways. Guess it also depends on just how clean the water is. I saw some fisherfolk on the other side of the creek – they caught some…but none were very big yet. Maybe the big ones were still sleeping!
