Day 1… Post Passage

A DAWNING

Deeply embedded intimacy
Yearning
A quiet answer
An echo
Beyond the veil
Of time
Ever so gently
Lingering…

In the distance
A mournful echo
Of a lone gull’s keening plea
Birdsong
In the forest
Marking presence
Opening sonnets
Of a Raven
Chortling jive
Eagles chittering
An early soliloquy
The melodious tenor
Of geese stirring

Across the Sound
And within
An awakening
Of
Resonance…
Symbiosis…
Synergy…

A million shades of
Gray
Green
Blue
Shimmer
And reflection
Both visual
And Inner

At anchor
Great Northern
Sways slowly
Deliberately
Held in the arms
Of invisible strength
An embrace

Morning on Lopez Island
