  • The beach was envious of the fish
    Envious of their sleek silver darting
    Through the dark depths of the ocean
    So one day conspired with companions
    Moon and sun
    To shape and tug and swell and move and shift, then pull
    Just briefly
    The glistening gleaming shapes of sand and gravel
    Darting silverlit into the depths of my imagination
