Tom Clark and I discovered each other through our blogs. We granted one another carte blanche in sharing posts and comments. It was to his blog, “Beyond the Pale,” that I increasingly turned over the years for a deeper take on the world as he partnered poems and AP images with a journalistic fervor and original sense of humor even Horace Greeley would have enjoyed. I loved what you did, Tom, and I’m glad that you knew that. – Donna Fleischer, word pond

If the Owl Calls Again

at dusk from the island in the river, and it’s not too cold, I’ll wait for the moon to rise, then take wing and glide to meet him. We will not speak, but hooded against the frost soar above the alder flats, searching with tawny eyes. And then we’ll sit in the shadowy spruce and pick the bones of careless mice, while the long moon drifts toward Asia and the river mutters in its icy bed. And when the morning climbs the limbs we’ll part without a sound, fulfilled, floating homeward as the cold world awakens.
