Great Blue Heron Poem


Great Blue Heron at Lewisville Lake

Heron In Moonlight

Full moon shining on a highway of bright sand
luminescent waves gently lapping land.

A slender shadow scarcely visible stands poised to spear
the unknowing crab or fish should one venture near.

Approaching with respectful affection
this phantom hunter melts into dune shadows evading detection.

Backing away this solitary wonder turns to the water break;
waiting for a second take to encounter and kill
sustenance from an elusive sea that gives at will.
