    Land Between Two Rivers

    A bird hunter slows the pickup. But a woodcock hunter stops.

    From the gravel road that stitches together a pair of Upper Peninsula rivers,

    the canopy of young alder and aspen looks promising. Closer still are seams of red-osier dogwood –

    withered bracken flecked here and there – smothering dark, damp earth. Home ground.

    Home today? Tomorrow? Or did they arrive and depart already?

    Nothing says today like a setter’s tinkling bell gone silent.

    And so it goes – find, flush, shoot – through this sacred place to where the rivers rush together,

    under brooding clouds pulling in the season’s first snow.
