Nature's Paradise


Blue heron struts by

Regal and graceful hunter

Cruising the shoreline.

 


Muskrat comes to shore

Harvests grass to line its nest

Swims off, greens aloft.



Eerie shrieks, high pitched

Incessant, make my skin crawl

Broad winged hawks mating.

Inviting for sure!

Aw, Shelley - thank you. Fulfilling to be able to turn my observations into a poem

And yes, Wendy - human swimming has begun.
