Southern Flight

Photography by Dr. Joshua Groetsch

He flies above the water’s edge

To see what lies below,

So very high in the sky

At times so very slow,

He dives into the ocean

Something in his sight,

Soon returns with fish in beak

Resumes his Southern Flight,

He lands near the water’s edge

To feast upon the shore,

Only to return in flight

To cruise the sea once more.
