A Day on the Water (Revised)

A Day on the Water

I step outside and feel the crisp air around me.

I sense the calmness of the water within me.

The breeze feels cool and whistles around me,

As I ready myself for a good day of fishing.

 

Chase, Noah, and I prepare our rods,

And cast out our lines into the crystal clear Nebraska water.

And in a matter of seconds I hook onto a healthy largemouth bass.

As it jumps and fights the water glistens in the air.

The reflection is blinding to my eyes.

 

I pull the fish to the bank,

Its scales shine in the morning sun.

I release it back to its home.

And watch it swim gracefully away.
