Gathered among a congregation of avians
Egrets, herons, spoonbills, storks
The scarlet ibis family
Spectacular, brightly colored waders
With long curved bills
I observed them from the hotel balcony
Many nested in the mangrove trees
Their bright scarlet like berries among the green
Others probed for insects and crustaceans along the shore
I observed them while thinking about the meaning of life
