Joanna Walkden Harris & Pete Spence

Perched Cormorant.
24 hours in eternity was enough
no fish jumping in the tepidity
pied cormorant skims for lunch
catching shallows as a choppy
westerly lingers blowing along
looking for a plateau to relax

it's all done with intention on 
and in reflection under a ripe 
sunset how orange is that 
perched over the plateau 
mirroring itself in the lax waters 
the wings held out to dry
