Heron caught dinner
then took hours swallowing

A five heron day —
four green heron; one great blue —
my morning swamp walk.

My morning walk brings
great blue heron lifting
silently. Big Bird.

Great Blue Heron sits —
watches, waits, one foot held up —
will he catch his meal?

Mist rises from the
creek — early morning — a great
blue heron stands still.

The great blue heron
fishes at the bend in the
creek — it waits, then strikes.
