Crow conference in the Poplars this morning

They came streaming in from the north end of the lake

Dancing across the sky like water bugs on a summer day.


Did you hear about the eagles?

We’ll get them next time.

And the herons, what a fuss they make, just over a flyby.


But the eagle pays no heed to the crows and their complaints.

She soars quietly along the shore.

Just another morning feed.
