Tranquility by Treva Laanan

His fishing vest

with its many pockets

each holds a secret

to lure a fish

 

a favorite pole

another in the car

this is serious playing

he wants to be prepared

 

the creel once new

now battered and soiled

holds stories of

fish that it carried

 

wears high waders

to fish the stream

no banks or boat

for him

 

gone for hours

comes home at dusk

“good fishing” I ask

his reply,

“there is no

bad fishing.”

Escape by Treva Laanan

There is a place

 

in the mountain

 

by a stream

 

where I go

 

to find serenity,

 

water ripples, burbles

 

plays leap frog over the rocks

 

sounding like music,

 

I give all

 

negative thoughts and feelings

 

to the stream

 

watch them glide away,

 

the sunlight filters

 

through the tall pine trees

 

creating flickering images

 

like a silent movie.
