What to do? -- A poem for Tuesday

My choice;
Fishing or flying;

Whether to fish or should I fly,  
Those are my choices for today 

Soaring with my friends, my buddies
High above the waters and trails
The clear blue sky above beckons
Beckons for me to be a part

Or should I sit by waters edge
Waiting and hoping for a fish
A small carp may come floating by
Tangy bites for my family 

Flying I'll join Nature's wonders 
Far above or come swooping by
For those below part of their show
There are bugs to catch way up there 

Fishing is relaxing. lean back 
and join with friends, watch for balloons  
Till I see my prey swimming by
Catch it'll make for feasting this day 

Can't resist the lure,
I'll make the big catch 
(written by me, White Crane)

The photos were taken by me on morning walks in the 'green belt' for flood control. My walk starts at the end of our street, one block from out house.  There are miles of nice walking trails.

fly/fish .... soar in the lines as cast and take wing on the dreams of air in a beautiful big balloon .... imagine a body in motion, weightless ...
interesting play here

Ah, but the mystery – which, for you, IS "the big catch"?

Nice options. Either way a wish fulfilled

I feel that it's not the catch that matters but the act of being...

Living...this is what your poem speaks to me

Wonderful! I love those water-side birds. Blue herons plentiful around here. Love your poem, Jim.
