A Trial To Follow The Movements Of The Fishing Rod

The diving along the fishing rod was tried

With wings of reels of aspiration

The support by tackle to succeed

A pin drop silence of indefinite wait

The bottom of the still water so bleak

The insects passing bring movements

A light of faith and hope in creek

Stands holding the fishing rod to catch in the path

From an end of superstitions towards the science indeed

Hook attached with the food of knowledge

The waiting ended and a divine peace

The turtle are not present

Couldn’t see the hurdles He had made

The two forms of baby life

Could hold the rod only when fish increased

The reels of desire and tackle of success

The food of knowledge

In the middle of endless sky

The mechanics of life proceed

The peaceful speechless human

The waves of feelings touched

Filled his heart with sensitive feelings

Used to lack emotions always
