BLUE HERON BLUES (Gladys, Please Come Back!)

Blue Heron mating dance, turned Fifties Doo-Wop…

BirdwalkGladys, please come back!
Whatever it was, I didn’t mean it!
My heart beats for only you
Nobody does the things you do

I’ll walk the line forever
Even, till the end of time
If that’s what it takes
To make you mine, all mine

My dearest darling, can’t you see
I was meant for you, and you for me?
I should have told you, so many things
I long to hold you, in these empty wings

 Because, I’m so in love, I can’t forget
The serpentine curve of your slender neck
Your straw-colored legs, like graceful sticks
Beautiful feathers, lovely pointed beak
The cacophonic symphony, when you speak

  1. The stories your imagination creates to go with any photo are always entertaining and thought provoking. I’ll bet you could take this same photo and write a totally different story!
