If Only……
If only I were a heron, I would wake the world
with a cry of joy that the rivers and the forests
and the steams were here for me to employ.  I would
open my eyes and look at the closest thing to me
and I would say, Good Morning, I Love You.
If only I were a heron, I would waddle slowly
through the grasses and I would dip my wings
in the holy waters and I would thank God for the
wonderful world that she created for me.  I would
slowly lift my spirit and my wings would, with a
deep and heavy flapping, lift me about the riff
that is the earth and I would glance down and
glimpse the wonders that were mine for the taking.
If only I were a heron i would cast a shadow over
the water below me and I would watch as i became
a miracle in flight.  If only I were a heron, my life
would flow timelessly through space and my instincts
would guide me even as I had no consciousness of God.
If only I were a heron, and “if-only” only worked like a dream….

  1. It’s hard to come by educated people on this topic, however,
    you seem like you know what you’re talking about!

  2. Hello! This post could not be written any better! Reading through this post reminds me of my previous room mate!
    He always kept talking about this. I will forward this article to him.
    Fairly certain he will have a good read. Many thanks for sharing!
