A Good Day – Fishing
Lovely water lily drinks morning sun,
On floating leaves and stems of darkened green.
A perfect place for frogs and dragonflies.
A trout or bass might lie beneath the scene.
So dip a paddle into waters cool,
Upon sun silvered surface silently
Drift and cast a line out, towards the reeds,
Until something big strikes it suddenly.
Now set that hook firmly in fishes mouth,
And feel the thrill of pull and jump about.
As fight for freedom so quickly ensues,
With skill and patience, soon you land a trout.
Now proudly display the catch of the day,
And then release it, watching it swim away
|Author Notes Lily pads, frogs , and fish, under a clear blue sky, on sun slivered water. Ah!
What bliss is this!
