Fishing In The Sunset

Have you ever fished in the sunset?
I did so many years ago
I remember it like it was yesterday
I can still hear the water flow

I had used a little bobber
On the end of my line
Even though it was dark now
A bat found it a find

For it flew down and bombarded
The floating little ball
Thinking it was food I guess
But it wasn’t food at all

The colors of the night was
As beautiful as it could get
I will never forget the time
I was fishing in the sunset!

    Something ethereal about that time of the evening, especially if you are sitting all alone in the quietness with the colours feeding the skies all around. Lovely thought and memory described here.
    Love and hugs Ernestine XXX

    You have at least 3 planets in gemini.. not only the sun but uranus and gemiini
    .... you are a brilliant woman...

    i was taken fishing as a child...

    but the obvious pain of the fishes bothered me and i never
    went along again
