Where a Silver Fish Will Offer Its Life to Death

Earlier today, I posted several photos I was able to take on a walk I took with my family. Most of the photos feature Great Egrets, beautiful birds. They’ve inspired me to write.

Great Egret

Like a white
flame
in the marsh,
in the tall green
where cattails
cluster
and waltz
with morning
air…

watch it step
through the thick
shallows
as precise
as time.
It will strike,
a spark,
where the water
ripples,

where a silver
fish
will offer
its life to death.
