Fishermen


Waterfalls extremely cold over that mountain but beautiful and marvelously they glow

In the night so pure and bright by the moonlight

Shines and sparkles catch every nature eyes


The river flows beautifully

You can hear waves waving, caressing each other

As the tree dance with the wind


And there leads two fisherman on their raft

Carefully looking for a place where fishes may be

A place where the river flow calmly


With their hook that’s fresh and calm

Hoping to catch some jewels

As the moon is shining full


Patiently waiting while enjoying the nature

Day dreaming in wonder

Whether Striper near or far

Compared to grizzly bear

Waiting for its bait

Silently but searching...


When its bait slips flawlessly into the best spot

Vicious attack

Snap! Bears had its snack


Like human we wait for our bait

And when the lines tug

We rolled it in


Like all fishermen dreams

Hoping for the biggest

And scream their lungs out when their rod snap in half


Give up was not their answer they just have to have it

One hour, two hours, three hours, and four

All they were waiting for was their fish


When their line tug once again

Oh man! They gotta have it

Battling with the fish for hours that day


Spin the reel few more times

He saw the fish tail

Jumps and flickers up the air


He’ll bring it to shore

And he’ll brag about his fish

The size that is and continue battling for more

Hi writingpoetry,gaurdforce,iccieve, sunnie and topnewhottoys, thank you all very much for commenting. I appreciate it. @Sunnie, I love fishing too...especially in the night...you can see a lot of shooting stars that you normally see at home just looking at one part of the sky from the window...but when your out fishing...you can see how nature live their life when people are asleep, they look so peaceful.

For some fishing is a passion not only a sport for others their existence. Good way of putting things. Nice pics.

Hi Uncle Matt, how are you? It's been a while! I enjoy fishing as much as I like eating it but I don't like cutting the fish up. haha...

I am well Chan! Prapon Kynom says hello! I like fishing but rarely ever catch much. I think it is the time of day that I go-most people go at night or early morning and I tend to go in the early afternoon. I don't care. I just enjoy being outside. As for scaling and cutting fish, I have Mony do it for me! She doesn't mind, although she hates watching other people do it. That I'll never understand! Glad to talk to you again. Take care.

Hi uncle Matt, tell her I say hello too! I wish she well and all her family too! You included! Haha...

I think she doesn't like watching other people do it because of the strong odor. One time my dad and his friend went fishing and they brought home a huge bass. It was huge!!! I remember taking a picture of it but I don't know where I put it at. My dad told me to scale it, it was frustrating...I rather help my mom cut the vegetable. I told my dad that it is his job, but my dad told me, its not. He's the man who do the hunting, women do the cooking. Many love and hugs!
