Frantic: A Cormorant

IMG_4940

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
