Raymond A. Foss Poems
Back to Poems Page
Spectral Fishermen by Raymond A. Foss
A shadowlike pair
fraternal twins
on the western bank
of the Sugar River
one white, one seemingly gray
in the flat light
the edge of night
fog rising
as the bare heat of the day
reaches dewpoint
standing motionless
as we drive homeward
early evening before darkness
real darkness envelopes the land;
but too late for the supremacy,
the sway of Sol
His power a fleeting memory
They were casting lines,
together but alone in their thoughts
separated as they were
spaced to focus on the game
the simple testing
fishing at dusk.
