Winter Heron

Personal Work

24x30" acrylic on canvas

 

Full title:

 

I had lost my way
so I hitched a ride
with a traveler.

I said, “Please
take me where you are going.”

I had to leave some heavy things behind
If I wanted to fly.

Aloft.
We were the final note of a hymn,
weightless and resonant.
The icy river leading us home.
