White Heron

Lone white heron loping
over winter’s blackcold water
on tai chi wings.

Might evoke many images one of which could describe today’s journey to witness, lend support to, the Base Realignment and Closing (BRAC) Committee’s hearings in Boston.

Base realignment and closing. A miscalculated consideration of dollars because people’s lives are not monetarially valuable. Disruption, displacement and dislocation are not concerns nor is the affect on those who have served and settled near these expendable bases.
