The Morning Catch

Soaring through the icy depths
searching for a glimpse of fin.
Protected from the icy bite
by silky feathers on her skin.

She knows she must
find food enough for two.
For her young there is
nothing she won’t do.

She catches sight
of silver nearby.
She dives and snatches
in a single try.

She swims to surface
and lays down her catch.
She hopes that in a while
there will be many more that match.

She knows that this small fish
will be for her little one.
She gets back to work knowing that
there is much more to be done.
