Emily Ramser: First Flight

 

Heron Wings

For Justin Heron

 

heron wings floating
caressing clouds softly, they
glide through hot air drafts
.
shoulders extended
painting shadows, blanketing
ripples and swimmers
.
patterns on water
criss-cross slits of black and blue,
cobalt tipped feathers
.
soaring up into
the palace of the sun, bills
of light sunshine straw
.
cradling newborn and
ancient in the crest of its
eyes. spiritual friend.
.
wing-tips touching souls
of those past and gone, sending
onwards and beyond
