Heron

3mei2013 009

The quietness that is not mine at all,
has posted on a rooftop in the street
taking a resting heron as its shape.

The bird is watching with me, the moment
when our world turns into apricot.
He is not out of place, he is a part.

The contours of the bird in marron paint
have made the light start in a better way,
now I can understand his silence well.

I took this photo early this morning, a heron on the rooftop across the street. He made my day ๐Ÿ™‚

  1. That’s beautiful, Ina (and the photo too (and the bird I guess (oh, and also the daybreak!))).

    • Hi John, thank you very much! I also saw a rabbit this morning, the more early, the more nature shows I suppose!

  2. And it would have made my day too! Wonderful shot and the poem is gorgeous!

    I Love how the quietness has taken the shape of a heron; that’s terrific! L&H xx

    • Hi Christine, thank you! Those birds can stand for hours waiting for food swimming by, or hopping by, their patience is incredible! ๐Ÿ™‚ L&H xx

  3. You create poems in minutes that take me days to do!!! lol xxxx

    • lol ๐Ÿ™‚ I am not patient enough to wait with publication and ponder about them, so sometimes they are a bit rough around the edges perhaps ๐Ÿ™‚

  4. By God, the shape and color do match!

  5. Lovely poetic observation & silhouette. Really like your style, Ina…

  6. This is an extraordinary photo capturing a truly magical moment, Ina! I love herons! What a special gift the morning gave you. Thanks for sharing it! XO โ™ฅ

  7. Croaking silhouette
    against a fruitful skyline
    enough to amaze

  9. Hi David,

    thank you very much, it was a lucky shot I think. or maybe the heron knew he was looking pretty and stayed for the photo? ๐Ÿ™‚
