Notable: Blue Heron

blue heron at reservoir overlook natchez trace

Standing on the banks

with a notable blue cap

the blue heron rests

looking for a place to nap


Crystal blue water

gently rocking waves

humming a lullaby

the heron is not afraid


All around

there is a gentle breeze

providing coolness

sleep will come with ease


The blue heron sleeps

in the morning sun

resting comfortably

till time for work to be done


Mid afternoon

returning to his perch

limb sticking out

it may be a birch


Observing the world

tranquil and serene

the notable heron is at home

he is the king
