Paige is a bustling sandpiper,
An intense bird gets all hyper,
When he takes a leak,
No problem to peek,
Nature does not wear a diaper.

Premium Member amidst the morning hush
as lover's stroll amidst the morning hush
silent eyes yawn, stumbling fingers entwine
whilst through frothy waves reflective skies blush
squalling seagulls sip the morning sunshine

silent eyes yawn, stumbling fingers entwine
as playful dolphins tumble in the waves
squalling seagulls sip the morning sunshine

Premium Member Love of a Sandpiper
I watch fascinated 
at its teetering stance,
bobbing up and down,
picking at small insects
that infest the lonely loch,
that it chooses instead of
upland streams or creeks
or fast flowing rivers,
or in some lonely lake.
 
Today I sit on a small chair,
behind some bushes...Read More

Premium Member A Samurai Sandwich Please
“A Samurai sandwich please.”
The waitress looked perplexed but took the order anyway
because she did not want to ask.
“Perfect!” the customer said.

Three more times that month he came in for a
sandpiper sandwich, a taffeta sandwich, and a typhoon sandwich.
The waitress brought...Read More

Premium Member The One-Legged Sandpiper
I saw a one-legged Sandpiper
today on the beach.
I saw him land on his single pedestal,
it was an artful thing.

Entranced by his disability,
I stood transfixed with curiosity.
I so wanted to help him
but we're worlds apart.

How can he feed?
How can he fend?

Suddenly,...Read More

Ocean Walk - Part 1
Walking along the ocean shore
Kicking up the golden sand
I feel the warmth of the rising sun
On the back of my freckled hand  
 
The willet and the sandpiper
Dash into the approaching waves
As the sand crabs and quahogs 
Burrow down,...Read More

Premium Member Seashore Memories
Shoes in hand, skirting dunes, protruding rocks,
I slowly make it to the water’s edge 
where sand and pebbles slide and gently rock
to the touch of swirling, playful waves.
A lone sandpiper skips; it pecks and probes
then with head raised it gives...Read More

Glowing orange, cloud coals burn
reflections into low tide evening surf,
slap lapping against scattered shells,
ripe fruits for hungry sea tramp's picking.
Itinerant thoughts, aimless as seaweed drift,
scatter like bands of sandpiper strays
on endless quest for burrowing crabs.
Peace rolling off the water, a...Read More

I watch them on the beach -
shorebirds they are called
running here and there.
Residents of land more than the air,
they'd rather poke their beaks into the sand
probing for morsels of tasty crustaceans.
Pecking, always pecking,
scrambling to and fro,
they're focused, ever focused
on the...Read More

Premium Member A Thousand Years of Compressed Sand
My hands rough like sandpaper
Rubbed along the smooth surface
A sandstone sculpture carved by unknown hands
I looked closely many images
Each staring at me
Like a convoluted totem

The bear and sandpiper
In a tender embrace
Intelligent dumb eyes staring nowhere
Eagles talons gripping, cutting into base

Sandpiper Pausing---Again
Sandpiper Pausing...Again

What times are these
where hearts run hot and cold
ceaseless conscience alerts
remind us of steel girders fallen prone
entombments sealed
their distant voice remembered well

Compassion's lens peers through
this fallen metropolis of micro-flesh
this glass transparency
engulfed by forsaken smoke
knowing today's ethereal
descends as heart's residue
embracing...Read More

Birds
Swift does the shallow river flow
beneath the trees that upwards grow,
Kingfishers sit on a shoreline rock
hunting fish in the water below

Starlings swarm in a large blue flock
at dusk and dawn at six of the clock,
A stunning spectacle that's a must...Read More

Nude Beach Ahead
Whirlwind lifting shapeless seas
Frosted
Crashing
In hot breeze
Searching about
A shell to be found
Not bare, raw flesh
No nudity

Sandpiper sifting shells for food
Millions 
Billions
On top it stood
Searching about
A bug to be found
Umm umm good

Nude, beach combing, swinging free
Lordy
No
He's eyeing me
Searching about
Virgin eyes cast down
Bare,...Read More

Busy Sandpiper
A solitary sandpiper picks his path
Three - four maybe a score
Find them on any sandy shore
Marvelous kaleidoscope  of mobility
Double jointed tooth pick legs
Old time movies jerk ahead
Staccato motion, roaming and roving
Pointed beak pecks at sand
As if going treasure troving
So...Read More

A bird is visiting my yard
One that I have never seen before
Eating from the ground so vigorously
Pecking like a Sandpiper or a Woodpecker

Looks like a Woodpecker
But not exactly and there are really four

The Sandpiper
The sandpiper seemed innocent enough,
as it trailed the water’s edge.
She followed, keeping her distance.

It was a beautiful day in April,
when the unspeakable happened.
A warm sun and gentle breeze
comforted her busy mind. 

Patiently, she followed the bird,
