The Fisherman

The waves crash hard

onto rugged cliffs,

their white coloured crests

then thrown like unwanted gifts.

A small boat is trying

to make its way home,

onboard a fisherman

now aware he is alone.

A storm has arrived

without any warning

to upset a sea that

was still this morning.

A family on the shore

search for a sign

however the rain and wind

now engulf the coastline.

The fisherman is holding

on for his life

while vowing that he

will make it home to his wife.

A life filled with hardship

is hanging by a thread

but arms of steel will

make sure he won’t return dead.
