Heron Not Alone
In 1997, as an English and Art major at Bellarmine University, I wrote the poem "UnCommon Ground." When I created this mixed media Blue Heron in 2014, I realized I was revisiting the same notions I was in that poem from years ago. The theme: while tempted to stay alone, I was yearning for connection. The poem, with an edited line, follows: UnCommon Ground I stand A stiff-legged hard-nosed heron My nose above my ears Peering at our sky Scoffing the world wandering by Believing I could go it alone That I can make my own happy home. Who needs another? I want no more hurt from my sister or brother. My lone legs are weakening. Jason Kelty
