The last picture in the world

A hunched grey shape
framed by leaves
with lake water behind
standing on our
little point of land
like a small monk
in a green monastery
meditating


almost sculpture
except that it’s alive
brooding immobile permanent
for half an hour
a blue heron
and it occurs to me
that if I were to die at this moment
that picture would accompany me
wherever I am going
for part of the way

It is sad to say Goodbye to Finnigan’s, my friend’s beloved cottage. ┬áThis is my tribute to the memories shared there, and the trust in the wonderful times ahead elsewhere, as the future unfolds itself.
