My Coastal Dune Lake
Ancient crystle dunes
engulfed by a risen sea.
Ocean shrinks to gulf in time,
baring mounds of sugared quartz.
Rare pools of sparkling life are born
to milliniums of nurturing kisses
from a coddling saline surf.
Embracing tides wash life to benthic worlds
as needle rush nurseries feed
flora, fauna, future.
Flyoff vapors, cool and collected,
fall to stream across shore to sea,
barrow for the rapt organic cornucopia
of our ever renewing coastal plash.
