it was open season
for fish, salt or fresh
high-sky diving for the catch
an eagle did a duck dispatch
and switched to flesh
but a boy making ripples with his stick
caught on to fishing and ne’er looked back
The scene could have been staged but instead it was an inspirational freeze-frame moment when everything was in its right place – blue skies, Spring blossom, a London park, the Japanese garden, a duck passing under the gaze of the eagle sculpture, an Asian boy making ripples with a stick. Surely this is what inspired man to fish!
