Wavelets On The Pool

Tiny wavelets on the pool today, a gentle breeze and raindrops fall with a rhythmic pitter patter. The ducks and wildfowl pay no heed, around the sedge bob and feed. The Heron standing as if frozen, his cunning eye a prey has chosen. And the elegant Swan glides, the Cormorant beneath the water slides. And the grey clouds float on by on this quiet day at the pool, the reeds sway and insects hide away, dry wings are required to survive. The Otter on its back dines on an unlucky Crayfish, seems well at ease with his surrounds, and the Water Vole enters a hole to the squeak of hungry mouths. In the centre of the pool a love dance, two Crested Grebes court, ducking, bobbing, all magic to the eye. All this beauty in the pitter patter, life goes on it does not matter. Nature gives in many ways, and as always this heart enslaves.

You find so much great inspiration in nature, Daniel, and it's a joy I share. Thank you for introducing me to the otter, crayfish and all of the other wonderful creatures that bring us happiness by their mere existence. Wonderful poem! Love, Carolyn
