Fishing Haiku

fishing excitement great, landing one is fun, to the water I must go, ~*~ on the bank I do stand, baiting my hook and casting the pole, watching for line dance, ~*~ moments of time tick, awaiting a fish to bite, fishing pole jerking, ~*~ pulling to set the hook, the fishing line is pulling my drag, excitement flows, ~*~ seeing the big fish swimming, pulling it to the waters edge, grab the fish to unhook, ~*~ pushing the stringer through, wonderful fish finally caught, to the pan he goes so tasty,

    Richard,, Stopping by to greet you and every other soup poet, with a special thank you comment, during this wonderful Thanksgiving season. Hope you do not mind the time I am taking to express my sincere appreciation for any support you have offered during the years, or time you have been here on the soup. I am deeply thankful and extend to you my best wishes for a happy and healthy Poetic Magical Thanksgiving Day. *Always & Forever, the Poet Destroyer; -*

    love it - unfortunately I haven't been fishing since high school. This brings back fond memories of trips with my dad and grandpa.
