Shore Bird

Shore Bird

Perched on a branch
observing a seal
leaping back into the water
spotted a school of fish fleeing
full strength in a single file
my attention soon caught
a siren leaning on a rock
leaning forward for a better view
I soon discovered the truth
she had lived long and looked feeble
quickly preened my feathers
hoping to reap a smile
from the lady
dove down on top of her hand
that should not be cheating
since my mate is way too far to see.
