He Called, April 6, 2016, 30 poems in 30 days

Today’s poem I sat in the wind. It just thrashed around me. I had gone to the place where the park attendant had said there were pelicans but as I sat there I had a feeling come over me. I really wanted to see a heron. The great blue heron has become a distant friend of mine that shows up in daily life at odd times and almost always jolts my awareness. Today I stared at the trees – where I saw no pelicans. The trees were flood damaged. About twenty feet up the trunks were black sticks from a far. The tops had already filled out green from the warm spring. I sat and watched the trees. That’s when I saw it, the blue heron and all the chaos in my mind like the wind around me, was calmed. It was a beautiful symbiotic moment in nature.
