A large mouth bass


 
A large mouth bass
Breaches the water at sunrise
For no other reason than because he can
One morning he caught a glimpse of the sun and
A reflection coming off of his tail 
Just as he noticed the line feathered in the air
 He thought oh no I am caught again
Will that line snap me near in half
As it did the last time
Will he  rip that hook out of my mouth
And let me go
Before he knew it
He was falling like he had never fallen before
A long plunge down and a short swim 
Into the long grassy water 
Which swayed as if to welcome him home
