 Fishing in younger days, author (right) and companion, San Fernando La Union, circa 1975

Meager may be their catch for the day,
     loafing on the idle sea;
had a big, big fish come their way,
     wonder where they would be!

They would on the ocean lost and bare,
     to places queer and unknown,
on the highest floor, on a swivel chair,
     or on some engraved stone. 

Fishermen, you love a life at the extreme. 
     with the big fish that got away
in make-believe story, either lie or dream;
     tell us how to fish, we pray. ~
