Rest in Pisces

The ancient eavesdropper

Rest in Pisces

A salmon flops ashore
all spent from spawning,
its pale skin glistens,
gills flex, tail slaps,
one last gasp &
its bones rest
down current,
recycling
through
countless
watershed
moments.

  1. Tyler, this is an excellent poem…my new favorite of all your poetry. Here is a link to a poem I think you may like called ‘King of the River’ by Stanley Kunitz.

    • Thank you, Ron! This means a great deal coming from you. I truly appreciate your kindness. I read the poem in the link and it was simply amazing 🙂 Thank you for sharing, my friend, and have a lovely weekend!
      Cheers,
      Tyler 🙂

  2. It’s fabulous. Of course. Your work is terrific, Tyler! As a Seattle native and a big fan of salmon, live and cooked, I have naturally followed their path in recent history with awe, wonder and concern. I’m so glad there are people like you on the front lines.
    Hope your weekend is splendid!!!
    Kathryn
