lagoon #3

I saw it entire

a fish leapt out of the water
completely in the air

with pike

and then shadows moving beneath
ripples circling above

no doubt about it
fish are in the lagoon
and moving around more

high visibility fish

and the heron
as well

perched on the same spot

I snapped some shots
I’m not sure
if I’ve brought the creature
any closer

maybe it isn’t meant
to be

amazing to see active fish
in such quiet water
