A Line of Thread – v2

a trap of the angler
for the unsuspecting
a single clear line of thread
strung by the fisherman
between flower and shrub
a road for her to travel upon

a line cast for errant prey
caught in the sunlight
this Sunday morning
after the dew had gone to gas
out of the shadows
in the courtyard

a line thrown to catch
her breakfast, a snack,
if they came her way
not caring the kind or color
casting her net widely
a line to gather her prey
