high tide
he casts his fishing line
into the darkness

    low tide
    collecting shells
    before breakfast

    the glint
    of fish
    in sinuous
    depths

    high tide
    shimmering moon
    in inching water

    worn gifts from the sea
    woven shells and bits of glass
    lovely necklaces

    low tide
    crows
    turning over stones

    morning, tide
    rising above the pilings --
    the pelican

    shadow races --
    cross chilly grounds
    a silhouette soars on thermal winds
