Fleeting Glance

Cursory – Word of the Day


Just a cursory glance. Egret on the Blackwood, on the river walk this morning.

Fleeting Glance

The diurnal rhythms as certain as dawn itself,
furtively I tramped the path,
lost in myself,
ever hopeful of meaning.
Undaunted by the elements,
cold or rain,
focussed, longing, searching.
All the while naure’s communion speaking,
breathing into my life.
Rain washing me,
wind my coat.
I looked up,
an egret in the shallows,
our eyes collided,
a fleeting glance,
and just as suddenly,
mystery unfolded.
