Saturday morning fog

Iowa fog sits

heavily in the valley.

Ocean fog slides in.

Sands of time

Sandy beaches gone,

Bright sun, warm on my chilled skin.

Memories only.

Great Blue Herons

As I spread my wings,

looking at the world, hoping

to fly and fly free.

Home again, home again

Yesterday flying,

Large metal birds soaring high,

I’m glad to be home.

St. Augustine – last day

Plenty of sunshine

No ice or snow down here.

Tomorrow comes to soon.
