Peeping the Bog, May 11, 2014

The water course in the bog – not the pencil-line of the creek that bisects from Lake Julia to Lake Puposky, but the slight water course that springs from the pressure ridge we call The Island and that meanders, as would a great river, to the bay, and that offered the first open water of spring, long before the bay ice separated from the shore, that water course that disappeared from sight for awhile, when the snow melted and the water retreated below the grasses, that water course this morning has emerged again, a green line drawn as though with crayon across the dun-colored canvas of the bog.
