Sunset and Sunrise



  In the dying light
  a heron flies to his roost -
  night owls hoot

  at sunrise heron
  waits patiently  to lance prey -
   night owls sleep

    On the east coast of North America, we have both white and blue herons. Your grey herons sound fascinating.

    Herons are a common sight in Scotland. They stand hunched over waiting to spear a fish. Linda x
