Back 40: Bewitched

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.
