Handsome Blue Heron, 194/365



The book of Kells daily poetry prompts (#8) is:  Turn your paper so that it's in the landscape position.  Write a poem about God or the universe or the horizon of the ocean with longer lines and see what happens.

Well, since I ALWAYS use my keyboard and computer, I have decided not to do this one.  I have company this week and have had very little "blogger-time" and apologize if my responses and comments have been minimal this week (and the previous as I was cleaning!!)

I took our guest to the bog garden to feed the ducks and geese and look what I found?  Isn't he (she?) handsome amongst this habitat?  So, I thought the above photos were poetry enough for today.  What do you think?  This is my pick this week for "Weekend Reflections".

He is handsome. Love how clearly we can see those spikey decorative feathers.

What a handsome guy! We see herons here every once in a while. They look so otherworldly, especially when they fly.

A wonderful fellow indeed, Margaret, and great shots you got of him!

I'm so pleased you and your son enjoyed peeking at my blog recently. It's always good to have a distraction when little ones are feeling unwell. I do hope he's feeling better now. Enjoy your company, and I'll come back to visit soon...:)
