Patience

Blue heron

Painting by Richard Rensberry

We humans make a lot of noise
and what we are chasing
escapes us.

The great blue heron waits
for hours, motionless as death
poised with its scythe.

In his meadow burrow
the gopher moves dirt.

We all have hungers
that consume us.

The great blue heron waits.
