Shelter & Announcement

Along the Muddy River

Along the Muddy River

Shelter #8

Ice on the winter lake,

once frozen, has cracked.

Now it retreats and returns

with the rise and fall

of season’s fitful weather.

A full moon illuminates

the crests of wave,

recently released from capture.

Ripples scatter in the light,

like birds with flashy feathers,

freed from shelter of henhouse

to nervously search for sustenance

in the dark barnyard dirt.

Lainie Senechal
