Today we share a poem.
A SAND PIPER SHARES HIS BEACH, by DEBRA Manske (USA, 2021)
Suited in brown and white
he pokes the sand with pointed bill
for a breakfast of bugs.
He’s made tiny web-foot shapes
in the sand, so many for such a small soul
and my footprints are as confounded as his.
Though, I took my breakfast elsewhere,
I suspect it was for his counsel
that I came.
