    Shuna

     

    Paddling stealthily  

    through silk seas 

    we hold our breath 

    as the otter surfaces. 

     

    His log body floats across the waves 

    head raised 

    then with a flick  

    he is gone 

    long tail sliding into darker depths. 

     

    Up again 

    like a champagne cork 

    bobbing and chomping 

    on a luckless fish. 

    We hear bones crunching. 

     

    There’s snow in the air 

    and the ridges are dusted 

    like Christmas Stollen. 

     

    A cloud the size of Scotland 

    presses down on the heron’s languid flight 

    and a rubber-headed seal 

    pounces on a bouy 

    a toy to play with in its loch-sized bath. 

     

    Then hail hits the waves 

    A pounding of diamonds 

    Beautiful and sharp. 

     

    Mica Schist captures the brilliance 

    In its ripples 

    Nature’s mirror ball 

    Reflecting the rainbow’s fraying end. 

     

    We float home 

    with eiders whistling in our ears 

    the urgent flock of redwings 

    in the twinkling of our eyes 

     

    our heads ablaze  

    with birds and beasts and light.
