exploring a subject with tangled roots writing

[fishing illustration by StudioTuesday]

In my DiStill Life column in Moonshine Ink this month (on stands Friday), I write about Tangled Roots Writing workshops, and the art of writing. I was so inspired by Karen Terrey’s workshops that I’m going to spend the next 6 weeks further exploring creative writing with her Monday night series. Will be fun to further hone my craft!

If you read my column and came here to see my poem from our “exploring a subject” prompts, here it is:

It happens in the blink of his fish eye
One second he’s swimming
The next he’s adrift,
On a silent invisible string
Leading to a frantic finale
Of weathered hand,
A different set of beady eyes,
Doling out a fate that’s unfair either way.
