Out on a Limb
You may think I have landed in a risky position
out here on a limb with nothing but ambition
The majority might feel wobbly and insecure
and so call my feat a stunt for the immature
But before you judge please let me explain
why walking around up here is not so inane
Most seek for gratification in things material
while I find the beauty of a cerulean sky ethereal
My view from here gives me a new perspective
on venues to choose so I can be quite selective
Above all this place is perfect for contemplation
for in all creation’s beauty I find inspiration
But before you consider climbing toward the sky
remember that I am equipped with wings that fly
Note: These photos were taken at Green Cay Nature Center and Wetlands in Palm Beach, Florida. Green Cay is a wonderful place to stroll on boardwalks through active wetlands and forested habitats. In addition to wading birds, mammals such as otter and bobcat can be found. My husband saw a good sized bobcat and tried to get my attention, but by the time I got there with my camera the bobcat had gone into seclusion. After reading my poem, he pointed out that a he has only seen a true cerulean sky in two places, the Great Bahama Banks and West Virginia. I won’t argue the point, but Florida skies must be a close second.
Lovely poem and photo! I like the colors in both the bird and the branch.
