Overhead they appear,
Circling ever near,
Gliding with invisible strings,
Ultimately they too disappear.
Drawn to the waters edge,
Glistening in the morning light,
Greeting the sun’s ever present rays,
Visiting us once again.
Waterbirds reminding us to write,
To draw upon each emotional insight,
Explore the depths to which we may feel,
To lift again and take flight.
Following the path of the sun,
Ever in the bright light,
Life is not meant to be dark,
We can change it when we decide.
Naming and owning the oceans of us,
Opening to the world of endless trust,
Guiding our path of knowing deep love,
Returning to the place from whence we once come.
Waterbirds drive our longing for freedom,
Transmitting the need for our truth in our being,
No turning back to what once was,
This spirals ever upwards into the hands of God.
