Wetlands–Leeland Seese

Wetlands–Leeland Seese

River otter waking up

The water and the cattails
Redwing birdsong
Tear salt

stings your tongue

Twitch beneath the tips of grasses
Clumsy stumbler
Little puff of wind

See Diana shamble through the sky

dilatory and forgetful
shawled in early dawn
bluely bundled
pale as a sigh

Clouds are rose petals below her
rolling over

slow and slow
Their melancholy airs

O river otter
Who is left to join you in the hunt?
