Shadow Coyote by Janine M. Donoho

Lapping waves of fogLapped by vapor—

An islander on high ground.

Step, together, step in a

Freezing fogDance of nuanced solitude–


First above the flowing sea,

Then confronted by amorphous mist.

To enter?Ridge through fog

Or not…

Giant sage cold-sculpted by

Frozen drizzle.

Shadows parallel our track

Along shrouded ridge lines—

Four legged.

Climbing back into sunlight,

Manga spiked hair drips moisture.

Complex yips

In an untamed tongue

Follow.Reflection of trees against fog

Soundings, Water Elemental
