Osprey’s shrill calls penetrate still night,
vibrating sea’s invisible skin;
igniting dormant dreams

Never mind, luna appears, orange
over distant canopy; a circle, clasping
the other side of truth

Even if you didn’t see it, mind’s moon
bends, clouding, withdrawing, receding
the tides of all word

There is an urgency since last year; the mate,
plummeting from platform nest. Shot; red-
speckled egg beside her, in chards

He has returned, soaring over a tidal creek’s
midden of dismembered quahogs, invoking
marsh’s green-spiked hopes
