Issue Nineteen - Winter 2012

Heron

By Linda Back McKay

Morning
water color
mist muddled pond
whip-grasses
dark as pounded
metal. Water
quiet pigment,
dense as regret.

Light’s first
definition
sharpens planes,
body, neck,
feather, beak,
head and darting eye.
Step and step,
legs fold to un-
fold, leg and leg,
silver slice of fish
beneath.
