“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.
