Continuing our celebration of National Poetry Month are two poems by Janine Phillips.
My Friend the Blue Heron
Again he returns, my old friend
Rain… cold, flooding, deep
A bath he decides for today!
Water reaching his belly in the
A branch full and swaying protects his
From hard pellets leaving the sky
Taking flight… he must explore
What else today has in store.
Driving along~lost in thought
Water flowing over ice
Flashing blue~Who are you?
My river friend~the blue heron
Just as I am flying along life’s road
My blue friend is flying by my side
Shades of blue across the sky
Shades of blue soaring beside…
