Cotton Candy Wings

Dancing. Hopping. Posing on one leg. Her bill swishes through the water. Cotton Candy wings flip up in the air. The light shimmers through her feathers. She takes flight, a short little flutter across the marsh grasses followed by a graceful landing in a shallow. She poses a moment, looking around, making momentary eye contact with me. Back to swishing through the water, then a quick preening of her wings. Peace befalls us all.
