Eat poems for breakfast
“Lie still in a stream and breathe water. Climb to the top
of the highest tree until you come to the branch
where the blue heron sleeps. Eat poems for breakfast…”
If I Had My Life to Live Over: I Would Pick More Daisies, Sandra Martz, ed.
This week’s photo challenge is descent. This Great Blue Heron frequents these falling waters, fishing for the trout, bass, and pickerel in the pools at the base of the falls. Thanks to Cheri Lucas Rowlands and WordPress for this topic.
Thanks again to Paula for hosting her wonderful Thursday’s Special non-challenge.
Thanks also to Ailsa for hosting her wonderful Weekly Travel Theme: Autumn challenge.
Thanks once again to Stewart Monckton for hosting the Wild Bird Wednesday challenge.
Thanks to the kind folks at Wordless Wednesday for the Wordless Wednesday challenge.
A selection of my heron and flower photos is now available at the Five Crows Gallery in Natick, MA. Drop in and see the work of the many wonderfully creative artists who show there when you’re in the area.
