One With The Rainbow

Waist deep in an icy clear blue mountain lake
Under the watchful gaze of the Grand Tetons majestic grandeur
Snow peaked summits reaching clouds where they join the rising sun
A more beautiful place I could never have imagined, even in my dreams

Casting sunflower yellow line patiently over and over
As the icy blue drops of water race back down the line so gracefully
As though they can't wait to return to the secrets below

The rhythmic snapping of the rod echoing in the still quiet morning
My fly floats by the place among the crevasses of rocks where rainbows hide
Beneath the icy clean blue water

Here we are you and I, sharing this place, eye to eye
Watching you dart from side to side, every color of the rainbow
Reflecting, bending, gliding
A rainbow in motion, here right beside me, all around me
You jump as though proudly displaying your beauty

As I gently hold your rainbow magic in my hand, thanking you for a perfect day
I leave you to return to that hidden place where rainbows stay

    hey.....I live in Idaho......not far from the Tetons. They have a funny meaning in French. Poems about fishing I could read all day. This was a great one.

    I joined you casting your fly into the cold waters and observing the mountains..It made my heart soar and want to travel to see the beauty of mid-north-west of this great country..The fruit bearing pears are blooming and putting on leaves as are the Bradford Pears..Spring has come in fits and starts this year..I have enjoyed and been disappointed at the same time..Sara

    Hi harry...boy do I envy you...I live in the middle of Oklahoma..I love it but have to travel to use my fly rod. I do so enjoy it...but fish the regular way around here all the time...there is something so special about being in the water with the fish. I guess I am part fish! Thanks for writing.....blessings to you and yours!

    Great anecdote about fishing Donna, beautifully portraid, reminds me of a day with an exotic oriental beauty I took to see a Salomn run, for the first time in her life and how a Salomn let her caress it - for some time - as it held it's own against the current, waiting ?, for it's one moment ( mating ) then gone to that graet river in the sky .
