Blue Heron not Blue


My attention is grabbed by a strange “awk, awk” sound up and to my left

A huge silhouette of a blue heron cruises across a newly dark sky

The bird is on the way to its nest in the brush by the pond and the stream that feeds it

The heron has no concern about election outcomes, healthcare, taxes, bills or Facebook

Its life is fishing, flying and avoiding humans

This way, the heron can be free of our fleeting concerns

The small fish it hunts don’t care about our issues either

They are in the moment, focused and free
