September air held a slight chill.
Friends were warm and caring
as Uncle David was memorialized;
Now, we explored tangible roots
at the old Snavely Mill of his childhood
where he and brother Paul played
boating and swimming at the millpond.
Suddenly // seemingly out of nowhere
a Great White Egret rose majestically
from the rust colored weeds
dying along the pond’s edge.
Circling for a moment above the trees
it flew gracefully on up the pond
and out of sight…

This is the eighth anniversary for the d”Verse Poets Pub. Brian shared some special moments in time that we all experience. He asked us to think about a special moment in time and write a poem to take us there! This is one of my favorite moments I have experienced. Hope you enjoy it too!
