Casual Egret

He sat serenely on the dock rail,
unruffled by human commotion,
his wedding-veil tail-feathers 
caressing his stilted legs.

Pelicans waddled, squatted,
tipped heavy beaks downward.
Grackles squawked, seagulls 
screeched, pigeons cooed.

"Go, sit on the bench
in front of him," he said.
She eased forward slowly,
turned, and sat. The camera 
clicked as the casual egret 
stretched to his full height, 
and stared into the lens.

His nuptial plumage fluttered
in the soft ocean breeze,
paying regal witness
to this mating
of mankind with nature.

    We have them all over here in Hawaii Cona, and I just love watching them.... the majestic way they fly in for a landing with outstretched wings, and of course you don't see their long legs until they land. I would love to have my picture taken with one. They have the cutest faces. I loved your expressive poem, the Egret being my favorite of the bunch! 7 ; )
