Andrew Thompson // SANIBEL ISLAND

Endless sandy beaches,

go as far as one can see,

people enjoying the salty blue water,

will find seaweed in its waves.

While seagulls poke around belongings,

longing to find anything to make their own.

 

A heron downriver,

waiting patiently for a fish,

an osprey flying high above,

already has one in its nest,

and a crafty raccoon almost to nest,

to try to grab it.

 

Coconuts,

starfruit,

oranges,

limes,

all growing in the same light.

Newts,

turtles,

dolphins,

people,

all living in the same heat.
