IBIS 101

He's treading the shallows
at the border of the lake like 
a house cat kneading your lap,
his neck like radar, scanning a map
for morsels disingenuously believing 
the borders of the lake are Zen,
that the mire in which they anchor 
is armor against the avian, but then, 
gliding guilelessly along edges, 
Slowly,slowly, no need for hurry: 
he never hedges the bet there's 
breakfast beneath his feet, 
the table set.

    I love sea gulls above all birds, but your Ibis tantalizes me. Love, Dave Austin
