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.

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.

Shadows on new snow;
two crows and a windblown cloud.
Third day of spring.
