Dear little grebe

Dear little grebe
You are often so far away
This day you came close
Did our eyes connect?
Did you see me?
Do you know the joy I felt as I saw you swimming along the reeds?
As you peeked my way
We had a moment, don’t you think?
As you swam in circles with your little friend
Did our souls connect?
Perhaps it was a message from God
“Be calm”
“Remember, I’ve got this”
The colors so beautiful
Your face so sweet
Thank you little grebe for sending me your spirit of happiness
A few moments of joy
Forever captured in colors
A lasting memory in my soul



“One day’s exposure to mountains is better than cartloads of books. See how willingly Nature poses herself upon photographers’ plates. No earthly chemicals are so sensitive as those of the human soul”
~ John Muir
