Brown falcon perched on a branch

Fall Falcon

When I become the fall falcon
I first see,
the cloudless blue skies
and feel the crisp weather
and I see that what was,
which is what we experience now,
was far from the end.
I then pass over
the desert of poverty
and I see and enjoy the sight of
its members smiling,
for their clothes
that were once wet and heavy
with the rain of
a global epidemic,
are now dry and
their heads are covered by shade.
I fly to see the mangroves of wealth and
they too have regained
the honey of calm.
For, by then,
all of us see that this pandemic,
was for a reason.
Like a potter molding clay,
God has shaped us
into more grateful people,
because this has taught us that just as
we can gain and have things,
we can lose them.
He has also used it to heal the Earth.
For, with everyone at home,
there was less CO2
put into the atmosphere.
