Undeveloped Film


A concord of nature

All from the trees along the river

Owls, swallows, killdeer, mergansers too

The river’s splendor rolled south into the blue

With each cast there was that wish

To seek, tease and hook a big-bellied catfish …

Steam rising from the water’s edge

Pier swaying with a soft current

Coffee in one hand, rod in the other

Wanting to pull one from the dredge

With each cast there was hope

Into the glare watching the bobber float

The sounds of peace

Under the mountains out of reach

A weekend with a brother

While music filled the air

A bucket full of ice cold beer

Time together out on the lake

Though “FISH ON” was not the take

Photos of the mountains and mallards alike

Memories, like undeveloped film

Reside with the others

Reservations for another

We soon will make …

Right here … right here on Clear Lake!
