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.
