Peeping the Bog, March 11, 2014
The watercourse that cuts south to north across the bog, from the spring at the edge of the pressure ridge we call The Island to the lake’s shallow bay, that watercourse, obscured all winter by the depth of heavy snow, that watercourse opened an eye two days ago, a small pond maybe six-feet long and two-feet wide. I might not have noticed its blue iris but for the crows, nine of them, fussing around its rim, pecking at the water, drinking it, I suppose, perhaps enjoying the cold shock to their tiny throats.
