From heron in
To heron out
I watch you
As I focus
But it is bogus
You watch me
I am your riddle
If you could laugh
All for a picture
Of a bird
I adore this in its simplicity! Herons are so majestic.
Thanks for your comments 🙂
Nice poem, nice pic.
Reblogged this on My Poetic Spirit and commented:
One of my favorite bloggers . . . Enjoy!
Thanks for the reblog and your kind words, Mary 🙂
ha i like the thought of the heron laughing at us trying to get their picture….we are like their paprazzi…smiles.
😀 Thank you!
This made me smile.
That’s great! 🙂 Thanks for commenting.
Mish, thanks for posting to dverse,,, just got here for the first time. I had to laugh at the opening lines, as well as the closing commentary. Who’s the bird brain, right? I always say, if you don’t know how to laugh at yourself, you don’t have the right to laugh at anyone else. Loved this. Amy
I really appreciate your comments. Thanks for dropping by, Amy.
I’m excited about sharing and reading great poetry like yours on dVerse!
I really loved this poem because all summer I spent watching a family of herons from the time the babies were in the nest until they were able to fly free. Your poem captures the same kind of feeling I had when I stood around with my camera waiting for the best shot!! Nice to meet you here at dVerse!
Wow! I’m happy that you could relate. I really enjoyed checking out dVerse. Thanks for your comments. 🙂
Lovely. Really enjoyed it..
But you know, if only the heron knew how majestic it is, it would surely understand.
