The Tides

Very often I drive across a trestle that crosses above grassland, a slough, and a good size river. I always check the water level as I drive to see where the tide is at that moment. In, out or a slack tide. It's so beautiful to see the changes that happen with the breathing of the water. The cows move around, the blue herons land in different places. The only constant is the large hawk watching like me, from his same old weathered tree long since ******** bare of any leaves or life with the exception of the life of that beautiful hawk.
