Today



Fishing for hearts


I went to the bank today

Red Spot II, Wallisy Kandinsky
To sit and ponder

On how to say
I have need
I am fishing for hearts today
I would rather
Talk of the one I caught
Than
The one that got away
I’m fishing for hearts today

I LOVE this! On of your best for me with, with it's clarity and heart on the sleeve approach to life. Why not state it as it is? Somebody please love me. Anyone????? Saying we have need is the hardest thing, until it's done. Then it is an orgasmic release....the end of which trails "why haven't I done this before?"

Brian Miller said...

i hope that you catch the perfect one...and its best to focus on the one in hand than the one that got away...some are just not meant to be

Wander said...

Thanks Annie, the prompt had a kind of feel to it that got me thinking of a spanish pesant fisherman, sitting on the bank with his pole deciding that today he was going to stop lamenting his past and search for his future. I know almost none of that is actually in the poem but if you look in the painting you may be able to see what set up that immagry for me...

Wander said...

thanks Kj this poem had no personal meaning, it was all about the immage I saw in the painting....

Wander said...

I am not fishing my self, but in here there is a fictional Spaniard looking for love but stoped by his past

Wander said...

Brian thank you as well

Wander said...

Wander said...

Great poem,love it!

Heaven said...

Nice way of looking at it...though tempting is the one that got away ~

Trellissimo said...

I think you caught us hook, line and sinker, with this Mag! :)

Dave King said...

Lovely, your use of the repetition. Simple, but it stays in the mind.

HyperCRYPTICal said...

Lovely stuff! Hope you caught that heart.

Anna :o]

I would not think the bank was the best place to fish for hearts. Very clever phrasing re 'the one that got away' Well penned (er...typed).

Helena said...

I loved the bauble and bounce of this one! With all those shapes and colours, here's hoping it was a vibrant heart getting reeled in!

Ben Ditty said...

Your words, Kandinsky, magical :-)

Wander said...

Thanks Ben! Your profile pic...Magical!

Lydia said...

What a unique take on this Kandinsky painting! This is fun-spirited with a bit of a lonely twist to it; I like.
