Conversant: Birds in the Sea

pelicans on pier ms gulf coast may 9



Coastal birds resting

conversant with the sea

chatting with each other

language unknown to me


The ocean is an ancient world

with a spirit of its own

so many creatures

in a world only they know


The birds dive down

exploring the ocean wide

taking in their food

rising with the tide


The dolphins help the birds

corralling the fish

each has a feast

preparing other sea life’s dish


The waters are calm

the birds are taking a rest

calling to each other

conversant to the best
