~Huge pond, tiny bird~
Oh, to grow into my feet,
moorhen chick reflects.

  3. Adorable, Sarah. What’s s/he standing on? (I can’t quite tell.) The standing point almost looks green, like moss. Very nice word depiction!

    • There are railings around the pond and lots of places for the moorhens to hide, including an island covered in undergrowth right in the middle of the pond. Hopefully, they’re safe. The seagulls visit but seem to leave the chicks alone.


  5. Love their green feet 🙂 Thank you for your poem!

    • Thank you, Inese 🙂 I think that particular shade of green is unique. It amazes me how many different shades of green there are in nature. If one was to count them, I’m sure they’d outnumber all the variations belonging to other colours. Maybe I’m saying that because I live in a green country. If I lived in the desert, it would be all the shades of white, yellow, orange etc, without a patch of green to be seen other than in an oasis.
