Ancient Creek and New Perspectives

Fiddler crabs scamper, their hiding places disappear

Mud boots, planks, engines stinging and muddling their ears

Strange lines take shape at sunrise and shadow of the moon

Aged brown pelican seeks perch soaring over the dune 

Driven deep, sighted in, straights and turns exactive

Cross-braced, hand-nailed, one by one, lumber selective 

Marsh to the channel, out to good flow, roofed pier-major objective

Master of docks, the best, always on the job, creating new perspectives
