153

"So Simon Peter went aboard and hauled the net ashore, full of large fish, 153 of them..." John 21: 11

Fishing is standing knee deep in water,
the sun beating down from the sky
and reflecting up from the water,
attempting to fool an animal
with a brain the size of a pea,
using deliberately tied feathers and
a curved piece of steel
honed to a point.

Casting your nets on the other side of the boat,
and waiting until you count each of the 153 fish
you slammed, before you visit your Risen Lord.
