LOON

The single lovely bird
in this sudden pond
beside the bike trail
startles.

Yes, it has the checkerboard back,
wide neck, definitely
not a cormorant.
I’ve never been this close to a loon before.

Its red eye
fixes me
before it flies.

I pedal away
blessed to be
its only human witness.

—Dianne Morrow. What Really Happened Is This. Acorn Press, 2011. 

PEI poet laureate Deirdre Kessler selects a poem a month by an Island poet for readers of The Buzz.
