Seine Haul Fishing For Life


We set out with our nets

Our doughty hearts in hand

And cast them out into the winds

Not knowing where they'll land


The fishes of life swim round

We catch them as we're able

Like silver darts before us

As we bring them to the table


Some of us are lucky

We work to make it so

If rocks come up in our nets

We toss them

Let them go

    I have much respect for the fisherman of the world, they work so hard and in sometimes very challenging conditions. Good write Lorna.


    HAPPY TUESDAY LORNA ~ Great Song with a great Lyric ! Love the Muppets & Judy

    They seem to know the Ocean
    Like a Man knows Woman
    She makes him wait around
    For half the mornin' for the tide to turn

    Pull in the ropes ~ Seine haul fishermen
    Nevr catches more than he can sell in a day
    Pull in the nets ~ Seine haul fishermen
    Day's for work and night's to go dancing !

    I live in the EAST COAST of the UK ~ some of my Friends are Deep Sea Fishermen ~ hard work but exhilarating and our staple diet is Fish ~ Chips ~ Mushy Peas !

    Love your poem ~ It's my experience too that life is like a fishing trip (I've been out with the Trawlers !) and you never know ~ from one day to the next ~ who or what you may catch !!!
    Thanks for caring & sharing
    Hugs Angela & Brian @@@

    And if we can not let them go
    We tie them to a string
    And wear them light around our neck;
    A parody of bling

    • Lorna

      Very good! Or a noose!

      • Jabberwocky

        I bet you tie a good noose! Cowgirl!
        If I need one I know where to go 😁
