Animal Wisdom 2 – Heron 2

A Season of Change 

All through this season of change

Blue heron watches.

We have laughed at calling her

A “herring” when

What we really mean is


She understands this,

When others don’t.

Just as she understands


When others don’t.

She has become a comforting presence

In this disquieting time.
