Give ~ 31 Days of Adirondack Memories < #write31days >

Welcome to day 21 of my
"31 Days of Adirondack Memories" series
for the #write31days challenge!


For the weekends inside the 31 days challenge,
I'll be sharing a "scrapbook" of sorts on a special


place within our Adirondack journeys over the decades.

Today ~ memories of the calm, peaceful fishing 
ventures, whether from shore, dock or boat, during summers
spent at Adirondack lakes.

Today's theme~~ 
Give


Lines strung, baited, dipped through lake's mirrored surface 


Contentment, memories, happiness given at simplicity in luring  a catch,
mainly in just being ....


Quiet togetherness from shore or on dock......
Dawns, afternoons, dusks.......each one softly hugs sun's
soft rays and plays on glassy waters


Silence...save for occasional comfortable talk,
rhythmic rowing,
 lines whirring, 
bait dropping
And always  pike and sunny are freed and returned home
sweeping gracefully away,
 tail swishing, propelling,
fins shimmery as quartz


Sun kissed little boy  shoulders and noses,
 hours on  bright lake 

Santa-gifted fishing poles last Christmas, 
lake memories forever

And the exuberant exclamations of "I GOT ONE!"
