Another "bored at work" inspired poem. Just had a thought and decided to put it into words.

~Fishing for stars~

I cast my mind into the sky
And ponder all of time
I feel a bite of knowledge near
Something has swept the line

A tug of fate has taken bait
I reel the line in next
But my catch has slipped away
And still, I am perplexed

I cast again into nights sea
While laying in a field
Fishing for the stars so bright
Hoping truth, they'll yield

Hours pass as I just think
In the dim chilled air
Springs night skies, rhythm soothes
And plays it's tune so fair

So many eyes glisten above
And wink as if they know
The answers to mankind's questions
Just by their twinkling show

I find that time runs a'muck
When entranced by the view
And every time I fish for stars
I'm lost to them anew

Oh jewels of night and wonders far
Mans mysteries you tell
Although encoded in silence
Please loose your lovely spell

The tales of time and all unknown
You embrace and you keep
Oh please release them for us now
From your vast sparkling deep
