The Duet of the Grebes

duet of the grebesimage courtesy of Google and there’s a video here

Necks a-stretch,  beaks
meet in heart-shaped song.
Their exultant dance
raises diamond drops
from the river.



Leaves flickering in the breeze
filter the light to moving speckles
in summer’s enchanted wood.

for Sally’s wild challenge

  1. Oh, they are magnificent!! Love the heart shape. ♥ I can get lost in the world of the tree-tops…I find that my neck gets stiff before I get bored of looking. 😉

    Such beautiful birds, Viv! I nearly didn’t watch the video because our internet was off most of yesterday and I’ve just started ‘catch up’. Glad I did and thanks for the lovely poem and the share. 🙂

    I love watching grebes dancing. Hopefully this will have resulted in chicks by now. Sally
