Georgia Heard, in Writing Toward Home, tells us her friend Marie has her students "write ten observations a day. Without commentary. These observations become touchstones for much of their writing later on." My poor husband had to find a place to pull over Saturday on a busy road with rain pouring from the skies after we noticed an egret wading in the water with a blue heron. I was fascinated. I tried to get a picture but I suppose I was a little too loud for their liking as they raced to the other side of the pond.
Because I saw you
Wading near the pond's edge
As the rain poured down.
You were there
With your friend
The great blue heron
Who was wading also.
I was surprised to see you
But even more surprised
To see you with the heron
Who seems to prefer solitude.
Oh, great egret
I couldn't help but wonder
What brought the two of you together
Two friends hunting in the rain.
