I wrote this directly after a flash flood destroyed my Alstead, NH neighberhood. As I sat in a strangers unfriendly cottage, numbly staring at a lake, a loon called to my aching heart. . .

The Loon

by The Poetess (SRP)


As winter teases this cottage on shore,

It’s freezing surface challenges

The warmth in my core.

But I can still hear it,

Through the frosty mist,

Calling for me to release my pain.

So subtle, so soft, yet clear. . .

The loon crying in the rain.

I was blessed to spend quite a few summer nights in a cabin on a lake in Maine. Waking up in the middle of the night to their magical sound is something I will never forget.
The place in Maine where I go now is back in the forest- but coyotes are just as amazing to me with their howls. Nature heals like nothing else.

I've always been captivated by loon calls in the mist. One of earth's oldest and wisest birds.

Highly atmospheric, charged with meaning.

Crazy as the loon, huh nature can take it away all so fast. The loon is a haunting creature with an eerie call, one that sounds like a wolf at times and then a tremolo pitch...could have been an omen. The loons are the main characters in my novel The Buckskin Skirt Oar Traveler. They are beautiful with red eyes naturally. It's a healing poem, and I hope you are healing...Blessed Be.
