Thank you Darlene. I hope you are graced by a heron today. Have a lovely day, dear poetess. xomo

With the heat we are having, the air is so thick that the Heron might get stuck. I like how visual your short pieces are.

Thank you Richard! I saw a crazy video of a bird that stopped flying, just stuck in the air… a glitch in the matrix perhaps? ;D, The air out west these days, it could just happen! Stay cool, xomo!
