Ephemera

it is a calm wave
a small rise in
the level of the sea

it travels
at a gentle pace
towards a beach
where it covers the sand
and disappears
without a sound

as if by magic
a small bird
appears
its slender beak
poking around
for food

its feet leave a trail
sharp imprints in the sand
until
the trail is washed away
without a sound
