Great Blue Heron -
this old heron walked cautiously by, the dim light of
dusk yielded an
other worldly blue plumage. He judged
me no threat and I judged him a wise old
bird, unerring in his intent, even in
my presence. As he made his solitary way
into the distance I felt an affinity with those who live
and die in nature.
He posed for a moment, then disappeared
into the shadows.
