Window of Opportunity
Seven Pelicans bobbed peacefully
on the gentle movement of bay waters
Sunlight captured on the surface
displaying its sparkling gems
A cloudless sky and warm breeze
delivered a picture postcard day
A Great Egret stood patiently
beside a dock fisherman
Hungry for his catch
I smiled remembering
our birds show no fear
when it comes to food
As I allowed the beauty of the day
to embrace my body
a dolphin arced in the water
and touched my soul with the sight
These stolen moments at the water’s edge
Seen through my window of opportunity
