River Drifting

A great one ! I will simply add
” Green was my dream and green the ink of life ”

Friendly Fairy Tales

Water Lily

River blooms green
Between water lily stars.
Swans nibble
Tender water moss
While minnows
Dart amid the bobbing
Carpet of green.
Water striders flee.
A hush falls as
The great blue heron
Lifts its wide wings.
He beats the air from his
Driftwood perch.
A redwinged blackbird
Flashes red and yellow stripes
Among the elderberries.
Mrs. Mallard pecks at
Arrow Arum.
A Canada goose stands
On one foot in the shallows.
The current carries us
Ever onward
Toward the sea,
The light in our eyes.

Water Lily and lily pads

Note: I’ve been boating with the kids for three days straight. They took to stand-up paddle boarding. They might never canoe again.
