A Majestic Gesture of Impeccable Timing

January 13, 2017

I awake with a cold and a headache

Greg awakens to a snow day:

Freezing rain crystallizes trees,

glazes roads, makes travel treacherous for buses

this Friday the 13th

Full Moon in Cancer

 

Greg makes me ginger green tea

I love him

We sit by the fire and look outside

 

Pine trees are heavy with slate green ice

Bald cypress branches are beaded silver

The palette is earthy, muted, monochrome, soothing

 

I say, It is remarkable that we can sit in our home and view a pond

Greg says, I was just thinking that too. And how we always knew a pond

would complete our place.

 

Just then, a Great Blue Heron,

shaded the same steely blue as the winter pond,

flies up in a majestic gesture of impeccable timing

up from the pond and across our view

 

Reminding us, affirming, illuminating, elucidating

life is a gift of symbolic precision

 

gifting us

view by view

bird by bird

moon by moon

day by day

 

our human obligation

is to pay attention

and give back
