The Outer Banks

Wow what an incredible prompt this is for me coming from M. Bednar at An Imaginary Garden With Real Toads! Thank you so very much! It is truly my favorite place on earth. I would like to move there. But I do not think that this will ever happen.

I just wrote one poem for Mary’s prompt at dVerse so there is not a lot of poem left in me right now. But, if a picture can speak a thousand words, maybe they can be considered poetry. Following are numerous photos from trips over the years to the Outer Banks – and a haiku.

pelicans over water
beaks dipping for fish

NaHaiWriMo … Days Eleven, Twelve and Thirteen

Catching up … as I started late … inspired by 3 different birds at my beloved OBX.

cloudless blue high wind-drift currents – gull soars mightily

low row line dipping skimming breakfast catch beaks full – digestion

foamed sea movement at the speed of light – hermit crabs running
