Bird Brain

From heron in

To heron out

I watch you

As I focus

But it is bogus

To you



You watch me

Fumble, fiddle

I am your riddle

If you could laugh

You would

All for a picture

Of a bird

  1. I adore this in its simplicity! Herons are so majestic.

  2. Reblogged this on My Poetic Spirit and commented:
    One of my favorite bloggers . . . Enjoy!

  3. Thanks for the reblog and your kind words, Mary 🙂

  4. ha i like the thought of the heron laughing at us trying to get their picture….we are like their paprazzi…smiles.

  5. This made me smile.

  6. 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

  7. 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!

  8. Lovely. Really enjoyed it..
    But you know, if only the heron knew how majestic it is, it would surely understand.
