Cormorant

The cormorant held its breath
and disappeared from sight.
Black, long necked sleek bird,
ducked under, gone.

Like an actor in the second act
it pops up in a different place
new school of fish
different shoreline.

Would that we could do that
shift the paradigm
be a revisionist cormorant,
hold our breath
and recreate the scene.

    I love that it “pops up in a different place like an actor in the second act.” Excellent. >

    I had a fascinating picture in my mind as I posed the question to myself.
    Perfect bird to illustrate your thoughts here this morning, my coffee-sipping friend.
    Happy Monday, Lillian.

      Loved watching these creatures from our deck in Ptown….they’d pop under and my eye would roam, trying to guess where they would come up again! 🙂 Glad you liked it. Up a little later this morning….just on my first cup!

    I’ve seen many diving cormorants,but I never thought of it that way… “and recreate the scene”… but isn’t that so true?
