Hairy and Pileated Woodpeckers



River Otter

It’s not often that I catch a scene like this from the studio window. I didn’t know what it was at first, but saw the otter on the other side of the river briefly before she disappeared. A while later I wondered why the crows were so warily watching a crack in the ice. The otter had emerged from fishing.

Haiku, March 26

Blizzard Haiku



Source: Environment Canada website


The poet, granted an isolate word

reaches with trembling bowl


stumbles the stairs trips on a root

grasps the thin shadow of a branch


like a dreamer realizing the dream

too quick to flight wakes up empty


in a dark bedroom on a moonless night

without a word. The silence, barren.





March 23


Shadows on new snow;

two crows and a windblown cloud.

Third day of spring.
