After a storm I went walking in the woods. In a mossy green clearing lay the large red branch of a Madrona tree. Stripped of leaves in the wind, it seemed to have the graceful structure of a gently reaching hand, so I met it with mine and carried it home.
Close by is a shallow bay. Winter brings wind, and clouds, and its rare to find a low tide with a still clear dusk. So the branch and I waited.
Then late one evening, it was time to go. I lashed the branch to the back of my paddle board and we glided off towards the bay.
Sinking the branch into wet sand, I let go, and it held. And continued to hold while I made a few exposures, then said goodbye to paddle home in darkness.
