for Reverend Fabio Garzon
It is like the first time I chanced upon a radiant
cluster of pink blossoms emerging from a prickly
hedgehog thriving on the slope of a mountain;
or the seemingly cold gray limestone of a glacier
that cracked open for the royal blue of the gentians,
white cups of the avens, yellow bells of the cowslip;
or flitting about the blooms of a ninebark bush
growing wild on Turnbull Island, so many monarchs,
admirals, skippers, and swallowtails;
or the site of two burrowing owls, heads gyrating,
yellow eyes frowning beneath thin white eyebrows;
or the wail of loons wafting across still waters
as we waited in the cockpit for the moon;
or the way a rainbow quietly appears in a misty rain;
or how he made Mother and me feel in the unfamiliar church
that Easter morning.
From briefcase to pen, paper and camera, one woman's journey to influence
how we care for the environment, our seniors, each other.
