I Love To Go Fishing - Poem by Juan Olivarez

I love to go fishing everyday,
To the river or the lake.
Up in the morning without delay,
I go fishing soon as I wake.

Down to the water to wet my line,
My float bobbing up and down.
Fishing in the morning, is just so fine,
Your face will never sport a frown.

A big ole catfish, or a little bluegill,
I just don't give a hoot.
I love the way fishing makes me feel,
To me it's like forbidden fruit.

If I get lucky and get a bite,
Then the day is made.
I'll stick around till early night,
Just snoozing in the shade.

    Fishing is an apparently simple experience
    that swiftly transforms into life dynamic communion
    appreciation of water lit nature with the rush
    of a gambler about to beat stacked odds in a casino.
