Bo Bay Today, Friday, August 21, 2009

-- by Jon Moore

Flitting shadows of three
Flapping cormorants
Race up the channel
Melting into thick air
As the squad gains altitude

Soon squad two arrives
Shadows rise
Black bodies flare
Into foggy skies

Drain plug pulled
Lagoon feeders stand frozen
In the depleting narrow streams
Staring between their legs
Ponder breakfast dreams

Off-shore pelly huddle
Sand bar hosts some twenty
From shore they are surfing
Or resting
Waiting as incoming waves
Wash their feet, igniting
A frenzied lift-off

Right here today on the Bo Bay
