Frantic: A Cormorant


The cormorant lands on the pole

frantically searching for its mate

in the afternoon

late for his date


Calling loudly

distress in his voice

vibrating across the water

his intercom of choice


The hours pass

he is diligently waiting

crooning for her

he is frantically  anticipating


The female  cormorant arrives

answering his call

they begin the courting dance

having a ball


Hours spent

courting without rest

diving for food

gathering items for a nest


The sun sets

the cormorants fly away

together as a couple

soon a family will be on the way
