And then you will be ready to begin
the most difficult, the most powerful,
the most fun of all. You will be ready
to fly up and know the meaning of
kindness and love.
quote from Richard Bach’s Jonathan Seagull.
Two herons fly
love and life in harmony
wisdom and purity,
Wingtip to wingtip they soar,
Thus to fly, what would we see below,
on our planet of beauty and wealth?
marred by rivers of sadness,
of people dispossessed, broken;
What blessing would it be,
so to float, in unity above;
Above strife and savagery.
The herons glide down,
among the reeds by the lake.
Meeting their tribe.
Are they simply like us?
a different embodiment,
With advanced spirituality.
