Two Realms

Early morning sun on the San Joaquin Marsh

Hummingbird flashes like a penny

A rabbit’s ears on fire as he hops beneath sweet sagebrush

Step inside the labyrinth of the great blue heron

He stares you away with that piercing eye

Swallows dip close to the gnats above your hair

This is our watering hole. Don’t forget.

Giant white pelicans slam the water

Spraying show offs

Calls of frogs, liquid trills, hot call of the blackbird

Squawks, hisses, cries, honks, quacks

Don’t forget, while you’re busy measuring your

Insecurities,

We were here first

And we’ll be here after
