Who Am I?

I started re-reading Norman MacLean's "A River Runs Through It" a few days ago. One of the passage in the book has always been my favorite. Where it said "It is an art that performed in a four-count rythm between ten and two o'clock". Some how after reading that this time, it really stucked in my head.

 

Last night in the middle of the night, these just popped into my head. I'm not a poet, but I thought they sounded pretty good. So I thought I'd share them with you all.

 

If Flyfishing is an Art,

Am I an artist? or

Am I a fisherman?

Maybe I'm both.

I am an artist fisherman.

 

I brush the sky with my rod.

I carve the river with my line.

I fool the fish with my fly.

I am an artist.

I am a fisherman.

I am an artist fisherman.

 

Maybe I had read these somewhere. Somehow they just popped in my head.

 

Let me know what you all think. Thanks....

Tom,

 

Excellent poetry.

 

You are an artist , a poet , a philosopher, and a fisherman.

 

Tom, I grant you three out of four titles. I am stingy with the Filosofer title.

 

Tom, less is more; stop while you are ahead:

 

I brush the sky with my rod.

I carve the river with my line.

I fool the fish with my fly.

I am a fisherman.

 

I wish I had said that. If you can continue to crank out insights like that, sign me on as your editor.
