Nature Revisited

A deer family plunging across rapids
In a drama intensified by a storm surge

Osprey awash in spray
Of wings and prey
A peregrine racing a coastline

At sunset the wildflowers
Gather their own bunches of light

Wood ducks
Splash into a forest pond
One announcement of birth after another

A gar pike
Ancient as the river
Alive as it is dead

A fox snake
Like a twisting fire
Burning out in the grass

Orchard orioles
Round out the ripening
