Storm Trackers

“I love the tracks left by hundreds of species of birds that remain in the air like we do.” — Jim Harrison


The tracks are barely perceptible.

You have to look with your memory.


Awing they mark the sky

heron, crane, egret, crow,

vulture, mockingbird, cardinal.


They leave tracks that change weather,

turning, churning the atmosphere.


Get them to reverse rotation

and climate change will be

a wing of the past.


This is part of “28 Days of Unreason”

based on prompts taken from poems

by Jim Harrison.
