Images--By Greg Gregory--United States


I remember
a white heron stalking
the edge of a pond
one early morning.

I remember 
swimming in a Sierra stream,
alone except for a red-tailed hawk
flying through a noon sun.

I remember 
watching a single swan swim
over a lake's moon reflection 
in silhouette.

They come,
hunting me at the edges
of my reflections, 
stalking me in these late days.

  6. Gregory,
    Great poem. I was in "The Aurorean" and "Avocet", as well. Just curious...what are some of the publications you have been in, in the U. K. and Canada? (You can e-mail me at ipoetdavid2@gmail with the answer)
