Moonbeam Ink

Bayou-Diversity (7 February 2021)) This moon washed the white beaks of ivory-billed woodpeckers as they flew to roost of an autumn eve. It glinted from the swords of de Soto’s men as they blasphemed the lower Mississippi Valley with ethnic cleansing in search of a metal the color of a kinglet’s crown. Likewise, one hundred annular rings ago this cypress tree may have absorbed the shocking double-tap of the lord-god bird, and it is possible that even earlier it towered over the wandering raiders. History is recorded with moonbeam ink in the redhearts of our remaining sentinels if we could but grasp the lessons.
