His boat running silently across
becalmed waters of the lake,
sun amidst its summer revelry,
alone but not lonely,
his mind emptied of all
trivial concerns of all
Fisherman holding onto his pole
with its line sinking into the responsive water,
senses attuned to his surroundings,
daylight illuminates the subtleties of the
he is engrossed in its totality.
Fisherman gliding magically on water as if in the air
like the osprey hovering above him,
fisherman has caught life’s most elusive treasure,
he has found his peace of mind.
