Hello and Happy Poetry Friday! Be sure and visit Tricia at Miss Rumphius Effect for Roundup.
Well, it's been a rough week in these parts. I've been sick! But I'm improving now, thank goodness! Just in time for my birthday. :) HAPPY! HAPPY! to all the others in our community who have birthday around this time.
I do have an ArtSpeak: Animals poem for you. This time, a stork!
My favorite storks from childhood:
The stork that brings baby Dumbo in the Disney movie.
THE WHEEL ON THE SCHOOL by Meindert DeJong.
These days we spend a lot of time watching stork-like blue herons at the shore of our lake. They definitely do a lot of watching and waiting...
thank you so much for reading!
It wades all day
in the shallows
time nothing more
than a ripple
of minnows, mice
