with arms open wide
she welcomes the evening waves
as they roll to shore

A summer pilgrim
slogging through waves of white sand—
how aloof she seems!
~~ ~~ ~~
temporary waves
surging through the summer sand
only to subside
~~ ~~ ~~
waves of summer sand
erasing the pilgrim’s path
one whole day and night

twenty months of drought
the fortitude of pine trees
blackbird’s plaintive song
~~ ~~ ~~
shimmering heat waves
rising in the wilderness—
spirits cry as gulls
~~ ~~ ~~
just before sundown
scanning the sky for rainclouds—
even foxes pant

solitary way—
for companionship the waves
and shrilling seagulls
