ODE TO A HERON

photo by Jon Merk

Graceful heron
swooping across
the evening sky
like a pterodactyl,
Prehistoric bird
perched
on a treetop,
my heart swoops
with you,
then stills,
standing by
the silent pond,
waiting for the night
to settle
around us both
softly
as feathers.

One from the archives, kids, as I am a bit under the weather. In need of some rest, also some inspiration. Someone throw me a prompt, LOL!!

  1. the do look like pterodactyls when they're flying over head or when obvserving them from a profile view.

  2. I remember this one, a really good one.
    Wish I had a prompt but there's something blocking my thoughts too. Focus on rest, a topic will arise. Take care.

  4. A heron is such a beautiful bird! I like how you 'swoop' with the bird, get right into its mind and soul.
