Blue Herons


These Great Blue Herons

Magic and gorgeous

handsome and wonderful

flying over a beautiful river of shimmering

diamond droplets

Landing on moist mossy shores.

Having something delicious to eat.

His exquisite mate comes with a big splash!

Walking on the hardest rocks they can find to dance upon.

Dancing and dancing on the speckled rocks

His mate loves the river.

Having the greatest time of their lives they

wander finding places to spend the night.
