The Blue Heron’s Retreat

_Blue Heron in Flight

While

approaching him,

he backed off

shyly around the bend,

onto the peninsula, and crossing

that,  flying , cleverly he thought, behind

 

us.

Neck tucked

 in, revealing fine

plumage, proud of his

maneuver, he works his feathered,

winged apparatus, cutting the head-wind fore,

stretching horizontally his long stick-like legs aft.
