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.
