Carpe Diem Haiku *Ob River*

Originating from glaciers of the Altay Mountains and crossing several climatic zones on its way, the Ob River (Обь) flows through the West Siberian Plain to the Kara Sea (part of the Arctic Ocean), forming delta of 4000 square kilometers. The Ob River basin is in the first place in Russia on the number of fish caught. There are around 50 different species of fish there, 50% of which are caught for industrial purposes. Peculiarities of the national fishing in Russia? A couple of friends, enough vodka and a river. Everything else varies…

once a glacier
river runs towards the sea

in boat for hours
patience is a virtue
sounds fishy

* * *
great expectations
entangled in fishing line
i catch the sunrise
