Fishing For An Idea (Draft 1)

Fishing For Ideas (Draft 1)

So sad is Mother Nature,
baby ideas come and go

We watch all our little creatures
trying to swim in the race for us,
not even knowing we were sponsors,
but we cried for them
however small they might have been, because
sometimes it is difficult
to swim in a drop of despair.

I cry when the rain is like tears in a fish bowl, and
we are so many who don’t have
lungs of expression and
can’t leap out
even for a minute of flopping
