The Fisherman – a poem by A. Michele Leslie

The Fisherman

At the shore
a silver boat gleams
beneath the moon

and a white-robed Fisherman
cuts Fish

from His skin.

A. Michele Leslie has written more than twenty plays, including one about a bus-ride that won 1st prize in the one-act play contest sponsored by Kalliope Magazine (Jacksonville, FL). This play was nominated for a Pushcart in 1993. Another play she wrote, Location Unknown, which treated schizophrenia during Victorian times, placed as Alternate in the Jerome in 1991. She has had about 7 plays produced in the Minneapolis-St. Paul area and has also published poetry, short stories, and essays and edited an international literary magazine (as a hobby) for about fifteen years.

She lives with her husband and two wonderful cats in Minnesota. She deeply enjoys meditation and in her spare time dabbles in reflexology, essential oils, and a variety of mystical issues. She is presently putting the finishing touches on two new full-length plays.
