Tufted bedheads
tow slick grass in
aquatic relay,
building
strand by strand
submerged mound crowned with
sticks and mucky glue /
an island
purposed for gently
mottled marsh eggs.
Spring brings
zebra striped baggage tucked
under wings,
copper throats and blank
cheeks cut calm water
spreading the surface
sending silence / ripples
refracting
off rocks on course
for hazy lakeshore.
