Mighty Blue Heron


First time I saw you, I was kayaking on a lake

I came closer to see what you were,

You looked prehistoric to me,

I was very interested in you,  I paddle closer to

get a better look at you,

You were camouflaged on the tree branch

That had fallen into the water,

I looked at you and saw how magnificent you are,

I paddled closer to you and you took flight,

I watched you fly across the lake with your mighty wings.

I was amazed with your power and beauty.

The second time I saw you,

I was kayaking down the Potomac River

You moved your head and watched me

Paddle down the river,

I watched you take flight and flew

Past me on the river,

Once again I am in awe of your beauty

You helped me to know that I had some one

Watching out for me and I was not alone

On my healing journey.

I saw you three times this past year,

You were my spirit guide as I

Was an on spiritual journey,

You let me know that I was not alone,

You were present while I was coming home into my body,

You helped me to know that I am not alone

and reminded me of the beauty

That is in nature and in me
