Not there yet but getting closer.

Two Fishermen and a Fish

“Two Fishermen and a Fish” – My Artwork – 3″x 3″ – Pencil on paper – December 2018

One fish, two fish,
How do you do, fish?
Black fish, blue fish,
I am after you, fish.
A bold fish, a cold fish,
I don’t care how old, fish.

Green fish, mean fish,
Swimming in the stream, fish.
Fat fish, lean fish,
You are on my wish list, fish.

Brown fish, clown fish,
Swimming up and down, fish.
Blow fish, glow fish,
Nowhere left to go, fish.

Red fish, dead fish,
You will make a tasty dish.
Hatch a fish, catch a fish,
You will be delicious, fish.

A hook, a pole,
A roll of twine,
And, pretty soon,
You will be mine.

Butter sauce with lemon-lime,
Sage, oregano and thyme,
A lovely glass of cold, white wine,
A meal which will deserve a kiss.
I’d like to know, so I don’t miss,
Are there other words which rhyme with fish?

The Other Side of Somewhere Else

“The Other Side of Somewhere Else” – Pencil on paper – 5 1/2″ x 7 7/8″ – My Artwork

I was carried off by the afternoon winds
To stir up dust devils and halos
And, to welcome mirages on the road
Painted skins of illusions
Reflections disguising reality
And, tricking me into dreams
Of things unknown
And, places which only exist
On the other side of somewhere else
