Sandgropers

 

 

The birds gather to chatter at 6.00 am

Norfolk pines tower over the conversation

misty waves cover traces in the sand.

 

The birds scutter by in couples

sometimes threes

rarely flocked.

 

They all appear to be related

sharing a number of similarities

like

sad eyes unblinking and stunned

curved beaks begging forgiveness and

light-ripped wings.
