Spend a day at the sea, and watch the smiles of the fishermen nearby.

Fishing poles, compasses, and windbreakers of gray and blue,

Indigo skies,  and the fresh breezes  make you feel new.

Sunlight wraps itself around your shoulders, as it fights the fierce waves and ocean air,

H ues of aquamarine, mauve and gold are splashed across the horizon by the tips of Summer's paintbrushes.

Every part of your body feels free as  you place the bait at the end of the fishing line,

R oaring waves surround you as you feel the  excitement , freedom, and the  golden  sun that never refuses to shine.

M emories touch your heart as you think of your father , the joy of unwrapping your first fishing pole, and tales of the fish that got away,

Everything changes when you get older, except your passion for fishing , a day  at the sea, and the ocean spray.

Never lose your lust for the sea, scent of fish,  or comraderie with the sea,

                      If anyone asks you why you want to go fishing, just tell them, that nothing is better than feeling free.

The fishing pole is part of a man's soul.

Hi Joanna
I'm not mad about the ocean, except to look at it and I hate fishing. But I do love the poem - your paint a beautiful picture. Be well, Liz

Thanks for the nudge, I have been puttin off getting my licence and going fishing again for two years but maybe you have reminded me how much I miss it.

My father loved the sea and was a fisherman--not by trade but by love. "The fishing pole is part of a man's soul." This is an excellent tribute and beautiful acrostic, Joanna. Thank you!
Reviewed by John Flanagan 4/29/2009
Fine tribute to something lasting, eternal some would say, and more than the experience of fishing, this is a whole way of thinking and of great attitude.
Reviewed by Karen Palumbo 4/29/2009
Just wonderful and what a tribute. Tis a hard, yet rewarding life....

Be always safe,
Reviewed by Gene Williamson 4/29/2009
I join you in this tribute, Joanna, to the sea and
to those who know the joy and freedom of fishing the sea.
