Egrets on the roof
watching the world below them
gathering of friends

    There were 6 white egrets on my neighbor's roof this morning.  It was quite a sight to see so many of these big birds together.  In some cultures, having storks on your roof is considered good luck, so I thought today would be my lucky day.  Can you write a poem today about good luck?  Have fun writing.


  1. You're right about the luck, but I consider it lucky, too that you get to see those egrets, Joy. How wonderful that is-friendly-like, as you wrote!

  2. Joy,
    Claim the gathering as lucky. Lovely too! I saw one here in the summer. We have the great blue heron often, but not the white egrets. Thanks for sharing.

    Yes, Christmas is a time for secrets and so much fun!
