Walking Quiet Ways No 2 Central Coast by Colleen Keating

 

Early tentative steps after Lockdown 

 

Dolphin Court  to Toowoon Bay along the foreshore,
past the Ocean Baths which is still in lockdown
around the headland
along the rock shelf observing the rambling shells

to the Grey Heron home


where excitingly I found 4 new young Herons
feeding amongst the low tidal pools on the rock shelf
in the distance,
to Blue Bay along the sand to the bend
and around to Toowoon Bay


where a last walk along the beach and I met Michael with morning tea of fruit.  It was again the birds that dominated.


Well the Haven of Herons could be a future poem.
