Hemlock Park Loons

When fog creeps in to sheathe the point, obscuring paths among the brush, unseen loons, hallooing one another, map out this realm of hemlock, rock, and water. Loon cries vivify fireside conjuring, old camper’s tales, for the point’s new children: they glimpse fabled elders, conveyers of craft and lore who made a mile or more of winding roadway through cut and cultivated trees. Loon cries reassure us as we sit in circled peace. The birds know where they are and so do we.
