Heartache

friend2

With a powerful downbeat of those long, tapered wings
You soared through towering masts
And skimmed over shining waters

Once so proud, so elegant
Now simply a flutter of feathers
Strewn by the side of the road

I have lost a friend

    • I cried when I saw him at the side of the road. I had walked up the dock just behind him yesterday and wanted to take his picture…but I was too slow. Cars and birds are a terrible combination. He was so beautiful, and I will mourn him.
