What Do You Want?

Photo by: Donna Creamore (Used with permission)

What is it that you want from me?
it’s hard to know when you won’t say.
<sometimes I feel I'm in the way>

Give me a clue that I can see--
not just some squawk, we need to talk;
perhaps you'll find that we agree.

You preen and then you walk away...
what is it that you want from me??

This lovely photo of a Great Blue Heron was one of several amazing photos shared by Donna Creamore at New World Creative Union, with permission to choose one and write a poem.  


  1. I am so glad you took up the challenge Ginny. I like your approach to what's going on in the photo... I love the outcome!

  2. I love this...what a beautiful photo for inspiration

  3. Fantastic!! Words and image both...I'm going to play too! :)

  4. Been there myself and you captured it perfectly.

  5. That's a great one Ginny. Fits the picture perfectly, and so much more. I really like the form too.


Thank you for reading my poetry and sharing your thoughts.
