Heron: Poem 5 of 30

It's National Poetry Month AND ----- Poetry Friday.  Robyn Hood Black is hosting today so be sure to stop by for a few original poems and lots of great links. 

I'm writing a poem each day through the month of April.  My poem today was inspired by a sighting.  Spring has been very slow here.  Today I finally saw the heron had returned to a nearby pond.  It made my day!

Heron stands alone
wading in shallow waters
majestic hunter.

  3. Thanks for sharing, Cathy! Did you see Sheri Doyle's heron poem in the Round Up this week, too? I love herons! Happy Poetry Month.

  4. beautiful Cathy! I was told that it was good luck if one saw a heron. We don't have many unless we go to some nearby lake, of course. They are special. Love that photo!
