I can see Spring coming home,
She is a graceful bird of blue-grey,
Wings gracefully beating high over the highway,
I drive with eyes up for that moment,
Brief and knowing its perfection,
A blue heron crossing my sky,
The world on the verge of verdant,
The blues are the first to return home.

I saw the first blue heron of the season flying over the road yesterday - a sure sign of spring coming. In a few weeks, the white egrets will come, the flowers will bud on the trees and the world will turn green with life.
