By John Cannon

the great heron
stark still.

He gazes out
with ancient eyes
at the vast world
around him.

He is young,
but his tribe
has been here
for millions of years.

He exudes
a profound sense
of tranquility.

His vigil
is timeless,

so far beyond
my short-sighted eyes,

so calmly
and clearly

the soul
of eternity.
