Jury Selection

You wade to the other side of the stream,
where the water has softly spreading circles
from trout slurping insects floating along.

It is there you wanted to be
with the sun on its downward slant,
and you feel just right
despite all the problems in your life
up until that moment;

they disappear in the whispers of your line
as you carefully choose the choicest ripple
to lay your dry fly in front of,
and you make the perfect cast.
