Back 40: Bewitched
The poetry of fishing into the sunset
Behind the beaver dam
the water shimmered silver clouds
reflecting the twilight sky.
Rippling surface circles
barely betrayed trout sipping midges
that barely caught my eye.
Still as a heron I waited
as the pond blushed beautifully to pink
when the sun began to die.
Bewitched by this opalescent silence
I wandered beyond, toward my own death,
and forgot to cast my fly.
