Poem -

Yesterday Jeff and I walked along the marsh and saw a Black-crowned Night Heron.  What a treat!   We stood right next to him, as his feet fit like silk against the grain of a rock by the bridge where the tide moves in and out.

Today, while waiting for the doctor I was looking out on patches of fog blowing in, and egrets and terns and ducks playing with the fog.

This is my poem about that.


summer in San Francisco

 

the fog blows in

like dinosaurs in a parade

across the sky

the birds reach up

grab twigs of moisture

for their nest

held within

like a furnace

for the gods
