(Moonlight by Edvard Munch 1863-1944, Norwegian painter)

On a peaceful night, still and quiet, the sky and water are one.


Dusk over the lake,
clouds floating
heat lightning
a nightmare behind branches,
from the swamp
the odor of cedar and fern,
the long circular
wail of the loon —
the plump bird aches for fish
for night to come down.

Then it becomes so dark
and still
that I shatter the moon with an oar.

~ Jim Harrison, born 1937, American poet
