slew sublime

fish fins flap
and slap
against the boat
as simon peter
pulls his net
up and over:
alley-oop!
a slew sublime
of hollow thuds
and sparkling scales
mark the wet
and wondrous
catch.

Miraculous Catch of Fish by Roger Garin

And when they had brought their ships to land,
they forsook all, and followed him. – Luke 5:11
