second flush

It only takes a second of metaphorical time
to tie pieces of poetry on a line
baited for the challenge as fish to fly
- no match for a prize writer though
nor ever runner-up to best of show
just jottings down to free the flow
keeping pace for yet another go
this word association in a heated rush
succeeds by way of a second flush

A hurried planting in the Imaginary Garden’s prompt: April Second
