Heron Speaks

Oh, Great Blue,

with your great grey span of wings gliding

graceful over silent grey sea:

Black Butte Morning


the soft tree tops of your body

to welcome the sun in the morning,

to dispel the worries,

to greet you with their glorious

embrace of this new day.

New, as if the sun arising from the horizon…
