Sat. June 15, 2019: Birding and Nature Meditation at Central Park


Bird in the Pepper Tree

Don’t mind my inexplicable delight

in knowing your name,

little Wilson’s Warbler

yellow as a lemon, with a smooth, black cap..

Just do what you do and don’t worry, dipping

branch by branch down  to the fountain….

A name is not a leash.

– By Mary Oliver
