Mighty Blue Heron

First time I saw you,

I was kayaking on a lake,

I paddled closer to see what you were,

You looked prehistoric to me,

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,

You let me know that I was not alone,

You let me know that it was okay for me to

Tell my truth.

And you were protecting me while

I was on an intense healing journey,

As I paddled down the river more,

I watched you take flight and you flew past me,

Once again I am in awe of your beauty

 

I have seen you four times this past year,

You have been there as I am healing and coming

Back into my body.

You have been there I have been on a

spiritual journey.

You let me know that I was not alone,

You let me know that I was safe to feel my feelings,

You let me know that I am on the right path

And that I am not alone in this healing.

You are there was I am coming home into my body,

And continuing to heal.
