Gone Fishing

Gon’ fish today 
Dog days drawn’ near
As Ajay -- trout’s
In open air,
Sitting on the bank without a care…

It rains at last
I see bass – must
Caste in my lines;
Hooks are fine -- bet
I‘ll, catch enough big mouthed bass for supper, yet

    I went fishing again the other day. I hadn't gone for a while. People fish at Coney Island and at Canarsie Pier in Brooklyn. Thanks for reminding me of when I went fishing with my father in Vermont(many years ago) Peace & Blessings Matthew Anish
