The Blue Heron Stills

Blue Heron, stream, photograph,

A walk from…. Before. When the air was cool, the land was green. The fires upon the plains hadn’t slickened the soil black with ash and soot. Before the sun turned to flame.

The Blue Heron Stills


Side by side

I walk alongside

The meandering stream

Stepping with care on moss covered logs


Glancing upon the eddies


for a moment


The scarlet leaf swirls

and the

Blue heron stills


Mist seeps now through the wood

snuggles up close

like a winter quilt

that leaves me shivering


Turning back

I leave my place of rest

trudge for the cottage lit with fire


I scout

in these wild adventures of mine

bringing back

my memories
