Today is Day 4 of 2011 National Poetry Week and we are encouraged to

LIVE- be liberated to find poetry and the inspiration for poems in every part of life.

I am still doing my thing πŸ˜‰ so I was delighted to receive a poem from Brisbane-based poet Graham Nunn and he had this to say:

‘Wrote this one for UK poet, Jacob Polley after taking him fishing last weekend. Think it tells the story…’

Empty Creel

Cast after cast
he failed
to notice the wind
reach deep
inside his ear,
planting there
a future of ice.

Thanks Graham πŸ™‚ Haha – it does tell a story!

I will post a couple more poems today (otherwise I am going to run out of days πŸ˜‰ ) I am really enjoying this week of sharing – so much fun to be had (the more the merrier).
