Meditation on Richardson’s Dock

Sitting for an hour
on the dock
a being breathes in

the crow sitting
combing it’s chest feathers
with a sharp beak

it’s fluttering crow wings
battering the dust out
after every few combs

breathes out to an unmoving wasp
near the end of life
under the picnic table

breathes in the dolphins
fishing for dinner
while the shrimp boat
heads up the creek

breathes to afternoon shadows
stretching, expanding
from the palms

prays to the glory of
green gold marshes
as the kingfisher screeches
crossing the rolling creek
