Yesterday in St James’ Park
catching Pokemon on my phone
I spotted by the waterside
a heron all alone
He was just quietly sitting there
patiently and still
waiting for a fish to pass
his tummy then to fill
I spent a peaceful moment
with him by the water’s edge
Before walking on through London
thankful for that privilege
