My poem “Ardea Herodias” appears today at Vita Brevis. It was written as a tribute to a dear friend of mine who died way too early, two years ago. It was Dave who turned me on to Presque Isle State Park, just a mile from his home in Erie, and he came to mind as soon as I took this photo, last year. I think that the Great Blue Heron must have been his spirit animal.
My thanks go to Editor Brian Geiger for featuring this poem.
