~Boxing Day morning~
Heron enjoys solitude;
quiet reigns, for once.
One of the criteria I used to judge talent is the ability of a writer to say what needs to be said with a minimum of words. Cut out the fluff and get down to it…and you are very good at that. Nicely done, Sarah!

Thank you, Billy. I take that as a real compliment. You’ve made my day 🙂
Quiet… until the throngs arrive… very well done, Madam!
The first noise of the day came from a squealing bicycle being wheeled up and down the road by a boy who hasn’t heard of oil! Mr Heron was long gone by then.
Ugh. Such a grating sound
Quite. I hate shrill sounds D:
I agree with Billy! Well done.
Thank you, Jean 🙂
a third agreement here!
I think we are like-minded about our love of peace and quiet 🙂
Herons always strike me as silent watchers, so this was perfect to capture the silence of the morning Sarah.
In the picture that goes with my earlier haiku about a grey heron, he has been standing still for so long, that the water is motionless around him and his reflection clear. https://sarahpotterwrites.com/2014/09/01/monday-morning-haiku-29-grey-heron/ They are wonderful birds. I remember, when I was a young child, my mother doing an oil painting of them. She looked so peaceful and lost in the picture as she painted it. I felt peaceful just watching her.
That’s a great memory Sarah.
