Balance

Nature is my school. My latest teacher is a heron.

Two of its favorite fishing spots are within sight of my desk.

Both locations have a downed tree lying in shallow water.

The heron balances on the trunks and stares into the water.

It is poised as though it is meditating or doing yoga.

Its movements are slow and deliberate.

Bend and Snap

It is focused on only the water. No wasted movement or attention.

It seems to be doing one thing and only one thing.

In reality it is doing two things.

Balancing and fishing.

Maintaining balance is required first.

Balance is required.

Balance is first.

Balance.

Flow

  1. Well observed and put into words. We can learn so much from nature and she also helps us again and again to put things into perspective. Hope you’re well and coping in this weird world. PS: I never tire looking at my dog, she’s a fab companion.
