By the Shallow Pond

by the shallow pond
reflection drawing northern fowl
a warm sun shimmers

tadpoles dodging the minnows
under kingfisher’s shadow


A Tan Renga is a collaborative two stanza poem. I found the first stanza in a Carpe Diem prompt written by Joanne. The second stanza (in green) is all mine.
