On the lake

After Luke 5:1-11

Standing: to speak, to teach,
reaching inward, but too many,
crowding the shoreline. Stepping
into a boat used for fishing; it
would continue to be. Finishing,
pointed to deeper water, away
from the shore, pointing, saying
fish where there had been none
before. Still pointing, saying fish,
and to prove he was a fool, let
down their nets. The weight so great
the nets strained, wood creaking,
threatening to break, to sink.
