The River Muse

My First Cast

By SchmalzPublished 2 years ago 1 min read

I was standing in the water

Watching the clouds go by

Washing my troubles away

Thought I’d try a caddis fly

So I tied it on and cast a line

Perfect rhythm intertwined

Was getting lost in time

The sun was sinking lower

And the moon came overhead

Watching the flow of the river

All those colors reflected in water

They really create a shine

Relaxed my weary mind

Some answers I could find

Saw it fly out of the river

A perfect moment in my eyes

A special piece water

Casting diamonds by and by

In this memory of mine

A moment of forever

Quickly passing by

My new passion

Was there for me to find
