Song of the Marsh

 

The marsh percolates,

while tidal pools swill

below pesky insects.

 

Banks of alligators

motionlessly salute the sun,

till their death hatch opens to feed.

 

Great Egret trombone sounds

punctuate nearby woods,

while shore heron lie mute.

 

Mid clouds and treetops,

songbirds chirp frivolously

to like-minded females.

 

My Baywalker drifts,

till serendipity selects a landing site

and I just hang out with hummingbirds.
