A stretch of river XLVII: Morning haiku

Image found here.

Flying, the heron's
feet punctuate the water:
An ellipsis trail.

I usually do not like haikus but this one is very nice.

Unless I'm mistaken, this is the first haiku in the Stretch of River series. You might have to make them a regular feature.

This one is lovely...Thoreau would approve.

Thanks to both of you for the kind words.

Ariel, I've written a few other haiku for past Stretch of River posts; if you're curious, and for what they're worth, here they are:

First one
Second one
Third one
Fourth one
