Awakening Coyote

Inspiration from Susan Wooldridge’s Poemcrazy

Cyano-coyote | Cyanotype collage print by author

The desert exhales.
Coyote, awakening,
sings the darkness bright.

Coyote laps up moonlight
sees his reflection as a shadow
in the wide dusty draw
knows his home of a thousand
hiding places
knows where to find the
good water along the riverbank
