(A string of Kimmy Ku's)

Lying on the groyne
Belly side, ribs into wood
Eyeing a dead gull . . .
Belongs, in a lull
Yet, bearing, sees . . . all in truth
Life . . . death, bobbing me . . .
An ocean to lea's
Wood to chest . . . A wooden chest!
Treasures lie in thee!
Sea, gems, destiny. . .
How gold hooks on fishing lines
Aye! . . . catch a live one!
Oversee the rise!
. . . And what the tide may roll in
Nought, compares to chump!
Nay, thou fools at bay!
. . . To cast out without remorse
Fate could wake a fluke!
Flying, mew's fortune . . .
Lot to suppose about wood!
Lying on bosom's . . .
What pains be abreast
Sea bunce to a dead Larus
Inhere, sprawled on docks

Thinking . . .lucky fish!

Like so many of yours: so unusual, yet it works. Such a fun journey in strange word combos and images! And the artwork, just grand (yours?) Caught my lucky fish last Monday: 2lb. Pompano on my surf fish trip to Ormond; For once a fine dinner, self-made!

Hails to Artist-Author-Poet Kimmy Van Kooten.

It is always a pleasant learning moment to read a literary composition that poemizes and poetizes... "Lucky Fish" does that with beauty, art and wise thoughts, like a flower diffusing aroma of wisdom.

I salute You, Poet.

There is no one like you Kimmy, and there never will be. The old gang has dispersed. Sad! Congratulations on your uniqueness and all the verdant blossoms that spring forth from your heart!

Nice painting. She looks peaceful and content, but the poem lets us know she is observant and thoughtful.
