Adam's Ale

A Poem by Matt "Mickey" Denney
"

I love my heritage. This is a short piece on a very special place.

"
Simple Ozark ecstasy
This complex stream
Aqua stillness slithers through
Mohaghony soil its bank
Granite, Limestone, Quartz
These rocks are the water's edge
Gentle breeze blown by God
Hair blowing in the wind
Wading in the stream I stand
This apparatus I hold
A long reel and graphite rod
Flourescent line tossed about
Falling forward in the water
Dragonflies and Grasshoppers glide
Above the water they go
A sudden splash on the surface
I raise rod and set hook
Reeling reeling, pulling pulling
In the net I claim my prize
A beatutiful Rainbow Trout
Subtle epiphany enters my mind
To many, this is Heaven

a very observant write. You created a great mood with this poem. Loved the description of rocks at the waters edge, and the fact that you knew their names. I realy enjoyed this. Thanks.

Ha ha I love this piece. I was raised in woods here in north Fla. Did a lot of fishing. Bass, catfish and brim mainly. I still go occasionally to the Suwanee River and fish. I've never fly fished before though.. This is great piece man. Nicely portrayed.

Ah...sounds like heaven to me. I grew up in the Ozark country. Takes me home..down that old country road. That's where I go to find my minds happy place.
