Their return brings song to my heart.
As you read this I’ll be packing up to return to the Bosque del Apache, to witness sunset tonight with the cranes and geese.
And maybe, just maybe, I’ll return there a few hours later for sunrise….
And what do I — what do we — do when we go there?
We stand, silently, watching.
We stand, silently, listening.
We stand, silently, gazing.
We stand, silently, grateful.
as all of the meanness of the world, evaporates for a few brief hours
with the soaring uplift of thousands of wings
as we stand there, in awe and wonder.
