Sitting in an old donut shop
stale as the late afternoon

Reading a great friend’s poetry
who lives in your country now
thousands of miles away.

Dreaming of fly fishing rivers long denied me,
I can still live the moments through
his wonderful words.

*Inspired by my friend Matt Roberts’ fantastic poetry collection: A River Once More.
