WILDLIFE SIGHTINGS ON THE MYAKKA

 

 

Wildlife sightings* viewed

From our canoe on

Tannin stained waters

Of the Myakka,

Slow meandering

Florida River,

Out of Snook Haven

  On a perfect day,

Sun-drenched-warm and dry.

 

Calling kestrels,

Stalking herons,

Singing sparrows,

Soaring ibis,

Perching buzzards,

and

Mewing catbirds.

 

Sunning turtles,

Jumping mullet,

Waiting spiders,

Wading raccoons,

Armadillos,

and

Alligators.

 

May the river run

Wild forever.
