Text:

Heron
He stands stark still,
Statuesque, refined, In business grey,
Unlike the gull he speaks when silence will not do.
His muteness making way for contemplation
of the fin and gill, of bubbles breaking
by a floating log.
The water shimmers where he walks on stilts
that slice the surface without effort,
without sound.
Feathers on the S shaped neck
become an "I" as easily
He plucks a shadow just beneath the ripple.
One life stilled, another now sustained.
