Egret

Old man of a bird
Stands unsteady and knock-kneed
Watching me with disapproval
Your white feathers thinning on top,
Eyes small in your weathered face.
I admire your willowy stance. 
You stare at me.
I laugh at you.

I am a photographer and a freelance writer. I write stories, poetry, gift books, and magazine articles––both print and online. Photographing children, places, and especially flowers is my hobby.
