Good morning and thank you for joining us! Please join me in welcoming back Donny Barilla. 🙂
Couples Away by Donny Barilla
The fishing boat sliced through the murky deep
kissing the tender kelp
draping the crisp joust of the onion stalk
waltzed among boast of the bamboo
lathering through lumbering fish
carpeting the grasp of the lily pad, calmly.
Arching tree branches, giving way-
chewing waters to another realm.
The old fisherman stops for a moment,
lights a stale cheap smoke- returns
severs the fog.
Several miles away, the fisherman’s wife
kneads the dough of a soon to rise bread-
fattening around her fingers
rolling in the cuds of her loving push and tug.
Hours later the couple embrace
in the spoiling hours of dimming daylight.
