 salmon leaps
through torrents to find
its name sake

After seeing jazzbumpa‘s response to this prompt, I was inspired to write this addition…

the sake hunter
projecting a love of death


Smiles, love and laughter

    Wasn’t it the salmon’s desire to be killed with the willow rather than the hunter’s? Does that make the salmon pathological? Willow death wish. My brain is tired …


  2. Love the puns in that first one…


  3. Nice take on ‘sake’ … cheers JRB
