Blue Heron’s Flight

 

Flight

of the

blue heron–well,

it takes quite an

undertaking to lift off in

the first place, especially loaded down

with souls of the dead!

He patiently hunts his

fish, his legs looking

like stickups

underwater.

 

Patient,

purposeful, quick

in his hunt—

these traits hint of

his elegant and deliberate flight

with his enormous wingspan,

his hanging legs,

his silent

patience.
