Walking an Equinox

BC19. What is God's loving care for us called?

In an unseasonable
understanding a lifetime ago,
I walked an equinox
alone but with
one voice
that guided me through solar flares
to somewhere near
a weightless stone within
the waters of an oblique world,
to seek
the great blue heron—
who leaving me its stance,
flared time-worn wings
and recommenced the dance.
