Drawing Birds in the Rain

With long yellow feet Snowy Egrets tiptoe through the grasses.

Spotting a worm they quickly spear it and, with a few jerks, swallow.
The Snowy Egrets hunker down in the rain.

On March 7, 2020 after meditation and sharing, I walked outside. Leaning against the redwood tree I sketched two snowy egrets finding worms in the rain. On March 19th California governor Gavin Newsom “ordered all individuals living in the state of California to stay home or at their place of residence” to stop the spread of the novel coronavirus disease. In less than two weeks my life changed. Instead of sitting next to people, I enter a room on Zoom. Meditation brings me closer to myself, Who am I really. Definitely, there are more birds singing!
