Otterly Delightful

Here is an otter, by Kenneth Steven

The otter is ninety percent water
Ten percent God.
This is a mastery
We have not fathomed in a million years.
I saw one once, off the teeth of western Scotland,
Playing games with the Atlantic –
Three feet of gymnastics
Taking on an ocean.

My burrow, "La Maison du Hibou Sous Terre" is located on the flatlands of West Texas where I live with my computer, my books, and a lot of yarn waiting to become something.

  1. There were sightings of river otters here after Hurricane Harvey. No doubt they were washed down the rivers in the flood. A couple of them showed up one night in a marina where I was working; the water level was such that they could get on the docks, and they did. As the flow decreased and the salinity increased, they no doubt made their way back up the rivers. They’re wonderful creatures.
