Poems From the Porch 34 ~ A Special Edition

Followers of ‘Poems From the Porch’ will be aware that now and then I publish a special edition that just focuses on one poem. Sometimes it is because the poem is rather long and I don’t want it to overshadow others in the collection, other times I feel it is a subject that deserves to be highlighted on its own, and occasionally, by standing it alone it just allows me to get an article published rather than wait another week for me to finish.

This poem is quite lengthy, and as I kept readers waiting for the last edition of ‘Poems From the Porch’ I felt compelled to publish it now rather than wait to complete the other requested poems.

This poem was requested by Bill Holland (billybuc):

“I've got one for ya.....fishin'

That's it, just fishin'”


Thank you for the suggestion, Bill. I hope you enjoy this poem.

Fishin’ ~ The One That Got Away!

I get up at the crack of dawn,

Bid farewell to the night,

Just before the sun comes up,

And while the fish still bite.


Dig the worms to use as bait,

Check sinkers, hooks and lines,

Make some sandwiches for lunch,

Down my coffee in quick time.


I love to go a fishin’

Alone or with some friends.

Hopefully to catch some fish,

But success of that depends.


Then I walk down to the jetty

And choose a likely spot

Where I’m sure the best fish are.

Expert opinion? ..Not!


I sit upon a three-legged stool,

And bait my hook at last.

The reel spins on my fishing rod

As I flick my wrist, and cast.

It makes a swishing sound, then plops

To the depth the float allows,

Which will bob up on the water

To warn of fish aroused.


Patiently I wait for a sign

That a fish has “took the bait.”

I almost fall off of my stool ..

The float is out of sight!


I grab the rod and yank a bit,

The tension starts to grow.

It’s something big I’ve hooked onto,

But what? I do not know.


I release the line a little bit

To let my quarry run,

Then pull the rod back just a touch,

Just like I taught my son.


Slowly then, I reel it in,

A process that takes skill.

Not like a hunter with a gun

That goes for a quick kill.


Source

An hour has passed, or so it seems.

I wipe sweat from my brow.

Determined though to land this catch,

The largest I have known.


Finally, I see the fish

That’s hooked upon my line.

I lift the rod and wind the reel -

I’ve waited for this time.


The biggest cod I’d ever seen

Broke through the waters surface.

But the smile I bore was bigger,

And could be seen from outer space.


My muscles strained to lift the weight

As I raised it to the deck,

The largest fish I’d ever caught,

But then .. oh what the heck??


The hook dislodged from the cod’s mouth,

The mighty fish was free!

I yelled a million curse words

As it slipped back in the sea.


Source

It flicked its tail and splashed me

As if to say, “Good try!”

While I just stared forlornly

And bid my catch goodbye.


I slumped back down upon my stool,

Tears pouring from my eyes.

I’d never got so close before

To landing such a prize.


I wish I had a photo,

Or something I could show

To prove that fish I almost caught

Was not some small minnow.


I had no proof to brag about,

I rue it to this day.

The biggest fish I ever hooked

..The one that got away!

      Hi Abby, thanks for checking out my poem. You are certainly not alone here, as a writer of rhyming verse. Most of my poems rhyme in fact. I appreciate your kind comment, and I will take a look at your poetry as well.

      This is the first rhyming poem I have read here (other than my own). I was not sure anyone wrote them here. You have some nice imagery, and the stanzas are very easy to read. Thanks for sharing. At least your nibble was better than seaweed.

      It's been a day or two since I have gone fishing, but it used to be a favorite pastime for me.

      You brought back some of those great memories...like fishing at dawn.

      Too bad you didnt get a picture...this is usually the way it happens. Then your story is just a tale.

      Nice poem.

      I caught a large mouth bass two days ago that measured 19 and 3/8 inches (49.2 cm). The next day, it was 19 and a half inches. The next day it was amost twenty inches. It is a miracle fish that keeps growing even after I have eaten it.

      Loved your poem, John, and I love fishing. It is now, 5 AM and I am getting ready to go to the lake. I'll think of your poem as I am fishing.

      I am not a fisherman but I love to go fishing with a friend about once or twice per year. It's always fun, no matter how much is caught. I guess the 'adventures' related to fishing make the majority of the fun. Thanks for the poem and the laughs.

      I was talking to my brother about the fishing trip tonight. He told me that it was a "marlin" that we caught that day. Not a swordfish. Idk they look the same to me. Haha. Anyhow, I sent him a link to your article and told him to check it out. Have a great day.

      Hi John, I loved the poem/story. It really brought back a ton of memories for me. I could go on forever telling you about fishing stories. Haha. I've always loved fishing ever since I was a little boy.

      When was around 11 years old I use to go to the lake to fish with my brother and my friends. We would just use a fishing hook and some fishing line tied to a stick. I actually caught a few nice rainbow trout and catfish using that method. Lol. I also have done some deep-sea fishing. My friends and I caught a giant swordfish one time. That was a crazy afternoon, but fun. When I lived in Massachusetts, my favorite place to fish was off the pier. I have a cough, cleaned, and cooked many Codfish fishing that pier. Stay safe and be well.

      This was a delight for any would-be fisherman. My grandpa was an avid fisherman (saltwater and fresh, as we live close to the sea and right near the river too). When we talk about what he must be doing now in the great beyond we say that he's with his dog and they're fishing.

      Lovely. You wove the narrative well. Maybe Bill likes fishing. Olympia? Doubt it.

      I used to fish and was extremely good at it. I grew up in Grenville, in the Parish of St. Andrew's, Grenada, W.I, a stone's throw from the jetty on which I used to throw my line. Much later, I would go into the ocean with my step-dad, who was a fisherman. Sorry, John, I caught big ones. Yeeeee!!!

      A charming piece!

      I have gone fishing once with our friends in the Maldives and we got excited when we felt the weight of the hook. We were caught with excitement and asked the men to haul it for us. It turned out to be a baby shark. we sent it back and bid it goodbye. Your poem reminds me of this experience and also fo our neighbors in the cottage who love fishing. They seem to be always happy.

      John - fantastic fish poem and story! I’m betting it’s true, too. I can relate to that sinking feeling as you watch the one that got away get away. Ugh. Makes for a great read, though, sort of an adventure we all got to take with you. And as you said to me earlier, it seems there are several coincidences here.

      Nice work delivering this to us on Father’s Day. I’m going to be fishing with my son later today and probably tomorrow. Hopefully we won’t have a story like this one to tell!
