Going Fishing

I know that it’s not about

nabbing a catch,

as you meticulously fetch,

fishing poles and fine mesh nets.

It’s about taking, and making time

for self, by taking stock

in nature’s wealth.

It’s about getting away

from the hustle and bustle,

of the everyday grind,

that clouds the mind.

Going fishing

Is about growing and knowing,

Just how far you’ve come,

and where you are going.

It’s a personal trip to rekindle

The soul,

that will keep thoughts young,

as time grows old.

But the ultimate skill

Is not proven until;

with slippery fingers

And scarred hands

you can,

Bait your hook,

without dropping your book

 on Tales of the Great Fisherman.
