    I really, really, like this, Greg. The pause at the end of line 2 is profound.

    Nice touch, Greg, and liked the contrast of human & nature in reverse. Delicate & nuanced!

    green heron
    drops a berry in the pond
    a strike!

    I just discovered the tiny words site. This site, and this poem–both beautiful–as someone else commented, I will look at their nests differently now. Which is, from a certain angle, the whole point of poetry. Thank you for sharing your work with the world.
