whispered white fog

lingers over the silent marsh

carrying across the reeds the echo of search

a red-winged blackbird, demonstrating its strength,

perches on one leg like a militant soldier, surveying the grassy kingdom

the softness of the mallard’s nest reflects the comforted security of this brush

hiding within this secluded world, the dream enters

as the shadow of loneliness walks between the thoughts

an entire sheet of heaviness

blankets my inner being
