As we move from this long dark season (and a year like no other) toward more light, may our spirits be uplifted and a more positive future unfold.

A few haiku and a round for you:

seeking inspiration … all the birds in the sky

— Marion Clarke

Old great blue heron,

Ignites my soul with wonder; She pays me no mind

— Christopher Lancette

Old Great Blue Heron No. 1

the great blue heron

glides low over the blue bay...

schools of fish vanish

— Sara Kendrick
