A Fisherman’s Day of Therapy

fisherman 2

Set men upon the waterways with rod’s and line’s to fish
Just gaining freedoms glory in a boyhood dreamy wish
As they sit there by the waterside while the Robin sings aloud
With their thoughts transfixed on nature shaded by the morning cloud

As the Water Voles swim to and fro down in the reeds below
And the Swan’s swims majestically as their dazzling feathers glow
And in the air an echo sounds of Cuckoo’s in the trees
As those flowers that grow on the water’s edge attracts all kinds of bees

And the fishermen prepare their gear for a pleasant day ahead
They see our nature at its best while others lay in bed
Like the Red Kite’s that sail the skies on just the slightest breeze
And flutter on a thermal draught with a resounding sort of ease

And down below the water line is fish of every size
Some Roach and Bream and Carp as well and Pike in their disguise
And up above the Kingfisher will watched all down below
And wait until the time is right before he’ll strike a blow

As the swish of rod against the air sails the float about its way
To come to rest and drop the bait where in hope the fish will lay
And little movements of the float will indicate a bite
But wait until it disappears before the strike is right

At the end of day with all fish returned and the fishing day’s all through
The fishermen will tell their tales while sitting with a brew
And sizes of their pass gone catch will increase in size each day
A fishing tale will always stretch till the next tale comes their way

But their enjoyment of the great outdoors never ceases through the years
It becomes a therapy in life away from toil and tears
For to be out there with nature is a positive display
Of how to cope with things in life as you go from day to day


Fishing and being at one with nature has been my way of relieving stress in my life and I’m sure there are quite a number of people like me that look to the outdoors as a natural therapy.
Again may I thank Admin for adding the great pictures to complement all my poems.

    At One with Life 23rd May 2016 by/Tony Gorman

    At one with life can mean a lot along the trails we roam
    And each one is a page in time a chapter or a poem
    We take the things that come our way to teach us what we know
    Like extracting seeds and planting them to watch the product grow

    The light of day will illuminate the paths and help us see
    A road away from dangers to keep us trouble free
    But dare we tread a darkened path that leads us into danger
    The moon can be a guide for us as in truth it is no stranger

    And sounds can teach us how to know what lies in wait for us
    An eerie noise can make us quake when in truth we shouldn’t fuss
    Our eyes are always on alert to guide us day by day
    And our tongue will taste the wildest taste and in voice will have its say

    And our thoughts will tell us rights from wrongs along our lifelong paths
    And some who chose the wrong one will face justifiable wraths
    And those who chose the right road will have happy times ahead
    And live their life contented after all is done and said

    For to be at one with life leaves you in a happy place
    To take the things life throws at you without you turning face
    For courage shows the way to turn some wicked things around
    And brings you back down to earth with feet firmly on the ground

    As life is a challenge from the start and leads us here and there
    And the worries that may come your way can lead you to despair
    So adopt a calm philosophy in this world of evolution
    For to always be at one with life can bring you the solution
