Here comes Sheila with her camera again.
Shall I wave her away or welcome her with open arms?
I always see her out of the eyes in the back of my head
Taking all kinds of pictures here in Wakodahatchee Wetlands where I reside.

Loads of cameras here, tripods and long lenses often line the boardwalk.
Sheila sometimes tucks in between to see and capture the views people most people love
And many times she's taking pictures that others don't think to take.

Hmmm. She's stopping now, looking up at me, for the first time.
I wonder. Will she see who I think I am, who I know myself to be?
Or will she stay with the world view of what I do?

Evidently she has it.
I see her calling some people over to point out, in her camera,
Who she perceived me to be.

I'm flapping my winged arms in glee.
My narrowed eyes open more
I can face the world with pride,
Knowing that I've made a difference far beyond
Simply being part of a team lighting the parking lot

Others now are sure to be expanding on the light
That ignites the inner fires of discovery and transformation.

Will you be one of them?
