verse

Swift Summer Flight

by Gregg Dotoli

there's a calmness
in watching sandpipers
zooming in tandem
over the summer ocean
searching and playing as one
in harmony as one
yes the whole is greater than the sum
flash-turning diving up and around
coordination genius
a miracle in wings
landing simultaneously
on golden warm shelled sand
teamwork
taught by Mother Earth
