A Casting Retreat

sunsets 003

I like a rod stiff, sensitive, strong and
This 5 ft. 5 FLW,
Millennium series chrome
Shines like a mackerel in May.

Matched with a silk-smooth, Spider-cast reel,
I can flip a half-ounce half way through heaven-

Where the sun in quiet grace recedes
Beyond this river’s bordering edge
Of sentient soft-wood trees.

Offering this moment
As penance I fling
My weight, with all my might
To a shimmering distance.
