The Canal Path

Great white capped
mushrooms
line the bare bank
of The Locks.

They took the trees
down
after the heaviest snow,
before
the gates
re-opened for spring.

So.
No one heard
their great spirits
calling.
No one saw
them fall.

In April we found
ourselves
strolling through
a cemetary
of forest memory.

Instead,
A panoramic,
unobstructed view
of the canal.
straight across
to the far shore.

So.
In our back yard
at the river bank
a dog size beaver
clutches a stick
in its jaws.

The beaver
won't loosen
its grip
of this one
scraggly branch.

The beaver stands frozen
as a garden statue.
Doesn't know
where
to re-locate.
So.
