There used to be a wood gate off Polpis Road.
It opened onto a dirt road to Sesachacha Pond.
The gate and most of the road are gone now,
but it’s a peaceful 1/2 mile walk.
With a view of Sankaty Light over the marsh
And fox grape buds everywhere,
We’ll be sure to come back in the fall to pick grapes.
At road’s end there’s a path down to the pond.
Perfect for fishing.
Or duck hunting, in season.
the name of this building is
‘Duck Wack Shack’
There are bridges across waterways
from the marshes. Improvised…
And solidly built.
So many birds in here!
Heard but not seen.
Nature feels the same way about this sign as I do.
Here are the true resident of Sesachacha:
Ospreys, and the fish they eat.
Garbage in the brush comes from people,
not trees reaching for the moon,
nor the sandpiper who left these delicate prints
Back up the path to home.
Leaving behind Sesachacha as we found it.
It’s all yours, sandpiper.
