earth note 26

bahia honda beach, florida keys

pelicans glide just above the water
four beaks in a string
a silent nod in passing
cloudy filter sunrise
purple orange
a pair of turkey buzzards stand on the beach
not moving
deep green waves blend
with blue coral patchwork
infinite destinies
striking an arrow straight to shore
up the trunk of a split-open palm tree
flying ants dive for cover
the wind and highway speak foreign tongues
unable to communicate or answer each other's
a thousand grains of sand
blow across my paper
