Long-billed Curlew Wading


20130310-170044.jpg

The way she walks
on pebbles,

wants to wade
on bamboo stalks,

and then,

we think
she slows to think,

her webby feet-
one slung,

tucked
into downy tufts

whilst wondering
wordlessly,

where’s that
wet slippery slapping,
that furiously happy meal?
