BY ED NORTHEN

Emerging

Like Angels from heaven

Trumpeter swans gracefully glide

Through a waning autumn air

 

Migrating

In small and large groups

As if on a pilgrimage

For holy days

 

Their elongated necks

Gracefully extended

Journeying with a purpose

 

Powerful wings sustain them

Uplifted above the earth

Defying gravity

 

They are not secretive

Announcing their arrival with raucous calls

 

It is as though

They are heralding

An Important Proclamation

 

I listen intently

To the gaggles,

Honks and shrills

 

Each note and sound

Has important meaning

Though it is a foreign

Indiscernible language to me.

 

Winter is on the cusp

Advent arrives with it

And I reflect other announcements

 

Proclamation

Of coming events

Of realms splitting

 

Something within

Awakens

Stirs my spirit

 

For a sacred moment

The liminal space thins.
