Daily Fly Fishing Poem #3: The Meaning of Mayflies

Rising Trout by Anthony Naples

Well, I started this month long, Poem-a-Day thing today (the 3rd of September, 2010).  For the sake of neatness, I decided to get three poems out today, so that I was on-track.  So, here is the third installment of the Daily Fly Fishing Poem. For the rest of the month it will be just one a day.

Poem #3: The Meaning of Mayflies

From glints and bits of foam,
unlikely pale angels ascend
to emerge scattered and briefly incandescent.

Leaning upstream, shrugging off cold water
a fish tips up, dimples the water,
and whispers the meaning of mayflies.

what say you?
