Calm, rippling waters
A family day on the river
Blue, cloudless skies
Sunshine ripples silver
As we meander through the waves upriver.
Glorious eagle silhouetted
High on a branch for all to see
His majestic profile, proud and erect
Cameras emerge and aim at the tree,
Reflection and awe abound but not me.
I think, “Is this almost over? I have to pee.”
