One Single Impression: Elusive





From August 12, 2011
Elusive white cranes and blue
Cry
 When the osprey
Glides through their silence,
Stopping
The hunt, or trading
One for the other
Before returning to a hungry nest

One Single Impression

This poem haunts me, as I'm sure the empty nest haunts the osprey.

Beautiful! You find always perfect illustrations for your wise words! Or perhaps it is the other way around!

Karen said...

Your poem is as elegant as the crane you write of!

It must be fun watching Great Egrets and Great Blue Herons gathering food to take to their young. I really like your poem.

Brings me back to my white crane and blue heron watching, Sandy. Very nice.

The osprey and the hawk should stay away but Mother Nature tells them to hunt.
