Ocean Commotion

wind lifts salty air
scent of the sea fills my hair --
fishing without care

pelican dives fast
shrimp on the hook was my last --
strips the bait I cast

turn with quick motion
see crab stealing sun lotion --
ocean commotion

a crab sheds his shell 
          vulnerable for six weeks
a new shell appears

stronger than ever
     he struts across the beach sand
less vulnerable

Beach Collection

salt crusted fish bone 
caught within tangled seaweed... 
high tide offering

hermit crab scuttles
erratically on sand... 
waving eyes on stalks 

opened mouthed seashells 
coated with wind driven sand...
change in the weather

wetland water whirls
an ibis searches for crabs ~
foraging ballet

white feathers emerge
standing tall on bright pink stilts ~
bill crab prize displayed

grunts and cooing sounds
echo the wet marsh at dusk ~
ibis courting chant
