Otter

Still silent full

October harvest moon

Silver light flickering

Across the marsh

 

Water still, water broken

I wait, listening

To the sound of the wind

Starlight holds my gaze

 

Reeds and darkness

cloak my way

shrimp scatter before

my coming

 

whickering we meet

weaving together

where sea meets land

in union
