Coyote

coyote-sepia-sm

four coyote crossed my path
one hundred yards up the oyster shell drive
on Pelican Island early one day

all five of us took pause
for just a few civilized moments
to size up the situation

these were not the birds I was after
but I aimed the lens and took my captures
before they continued off the trail

we call such animals wild
but who can claim to keep the peace
breathing the air under such a sky
