haiku - gone

photo, Donna Z Falcone 2011

slippery treasure
wriggles from my futile grab
skitters fast away

This haiku is offered for Tweetspeak Poetry's poetry prompt, "The One That Got Away."

her bravery
impressed him 
she could 
weave a worm guaranteed to arrive in the fish's mouth intact 
unhook the catch without wincing at blood
cast her line with a nearly inaudible whir and a plop 
one hundred miles in any direction
(trees even quaked in their roots)

she was pretty good
for a girl
