|Harris Hawk roosting in a mesquite tree at Sweetwater Wetlands|
I walk through this worldBeneath so many treesUnaware of the birdsUp in the leaves.
|Great Blue Heron at Lakeside Park 12-21-12|
Up in the foliage
over my head
While I walk below
They are in bed
|Napping adult Black-crowned Night Heron 12-21-2012|
Some tuck their beaks
Under their wings
Some watch me warily
And some just sing!
|Vermilion Flycatcher at Lakeside Park 12-21-2012|
Until I discovered
the places they hide,
and the beauty above me
When I am outside!
|Juvenile Black-crowned Night Heron 12-21-2012|
So now when I walk
I look up above
Searching for birds
‘cause I am In Love
