Sanderlings forage

sanderlings forage
the uppermost band of wet
sand, - probe for tiny
mollusks and crustacea,
inscribe dense islands
on the wind-smoothed beach.

nearby birds in ones and twos
join the group and the group grows.

torn fog's blown across the strand.
this world! so mysterious!

    sanderlings weave world into sky,
knit all to each -
four ravens pass by.
