The One Thousand Herons - Poem by RIC BASTASA

you have sent a thousand
herons in the blue skies
they will be landing on
some places you have not
been to, meeting races of
men, at different times
even when you are already
gone. These herons will
always be alive, even
when the blue skies turn
gray, even when the places
become hazy, even when
all the races disappear.

i hear the flaps of their wings
their songs and silence sometimes.
