The Blue Heron reached down with
his strong beak,
swooping up the largest
fish in the lake.
He flew with his prize to the shore.
The other fishermen in
their boats baiting their hooks,
could only look on with envy.
Mary Bone about Mary Bone
I have been writing since the age of twelve and have had two books of poetry published. My poems have appeared in journals, magazines, newspapers and online blogs. The most recent poetry acceptances are posted at Poetry Pacific, Literary Yard, Afflatus Magazine and my poem, ”Other Warriors” will appear in the July/August issue of Oklahoma Today Magazine. I also like to draw and paint in my spare time.
