Tall Tales and Truths from Hogie
When you are outdoors
a lot and you keep your eyes open you’re surprised at how much you see. It happened to a buddy and me while we were
quail hunting a few falls ago. As we walked across a plowed and ridged tobacco field we both spotted an arrowhead that had
been washed clean by a recent rain.
We agreed that the following Sunday,
when we couldn’t hunt, that we’d come back and look some more. We did and that was the start of another wonderful
Over the years we’ve found hundreds and at age 74 it’s
something I still can do.
Up five rows, back five more
in hand, both spring and fall
Chips here, broken pieces there
a distance a shade of greenish color
That just could be a point
your breath a short pause longer
Bend quickly and reach
got it in hand
Then magically say
Bingo, I did it!
A perfect arrowhead from times gone by
The rush is fast, the pleasure tremendous
A perfectly made point to be passed on
For others to cherish.
