Egret

Sun skips on water,
teases a wayward egret
looking for his mate.

Today’s prompt was freestyle. I chose the egret because we have a few down here that live on the golf course. Sunday, one of them was sitting right where I wanted to aim my ball. Of course, I chose an alternate route and ended up in the water. At least I had an excuse for a change.

Thank you, SiS, for hosting this challenge.
