The Sparkling Crowned Egret

by Barbara Gurry/rowell

Today, while walking I saw a great white egret. In front of me she stood with amazing grace and stillness. Following her lead I mindfully stilled myself and observed the varied shades of white that embraced her, I watched as her crown sparkled from the golden sun.   With the details of my view fixed in my mind I began to move on, wondering just how long she would remain still.
