“IN A FOAM OF GRAY” by Madhavi Karri

Balanced on one leg

A heron looks to the south

Slow drift of a new song

Wafting over the lake

Waxing flaxen early autumn

Is in the throes of a full-blown launch

Reminded of new paths

The heron glides

Over the enchanted waters

God of adventure

Perched on its wings

Forging a force of a foraging being

To follow its destiny and its dreams

In a foam of gray

On hope-laden wings

It propels itself to a smooth liftoff

Onto highways of the heavens

Laying claim to its own piece of sky

To travel under its benevolent eye
