Old Man Heron

A white faced heron

perches atop shed, silo or windmill

His impassive face

gazes

 

seemingly lost in thought

 

The yellow traytop pulls into the yard

His attention is casually drawn,

follows the vehicle,

 

Neck curls in a hunch,

stretches,

eyes observe

 

as though

farming actions are noted,

approved

 

Job done,

he lifts

and flies away
