Slice of Life/Day in a Poem (Day 22): Heron In Flight

(This is for the Slice of Life challenge, hosted by Two Writing Teachers. We write on Tuesdays about the small moments in the larger perspective and then all through March — every single day  …  You write, too.)

On the way up
to take in the sky,
my eyes notice
the Great Blue Heron,
a floating apparition
shadowed by cloud
on its way towards water

Peace (in the noticing),


  1. Blue herons are magnificent! I’ve seen one a few times in our wetland area, and in a conservation area not far awy.
