Partake: An Egret on a Summer Day

white egret pelahatchie bay april 12

The egret partakes

in the beauty of the day

he and his shadow searching

for food and comfort along the way

 

What thoughts does he have

strutting along the shore

only thoughts of survival

or is there more

 

The coolness of the water

in the hot summer sun

joining other creatures

some are on the run

 

A brief moment in time

he partakes in a fish

enjoying each morsel

it is a tasty dish

 

Moving on

one final glance

his reflection is moving

to the rhythm of the river dance
