I walk the earth with the dinosaurs

Divided only by time

Fossils scrapbook their journey

As the wind sings a same song


I share the sky with the *Archaeopteryx

When my eyes slice through the willowy clouds

And kindred winds tickle my skin

As I drink in the sun’s consoling warmth


For each new earthly wind,

Cloud, sunshine, and walk,

Offer exhilarating freshness

For the dinosaurs, me,

And all the creatures to follow



*Archaeopteryx – “one of a family of extinct reptile like birds of the Jurassic period”
