Ospreys shrill calls penetrate still night,
vibrating seas invisible skin;
igniting dormant dreams
Never mind, luna appears, orange
over distant canopy; a circle, clasping
the other side of truth
Even if you didnt see it, minds 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 creeks
midden of dismembered quahogs, invoking
marshs green-spiked hopes

Getting a taste of God's creation as it should be!
