Dunlin Again

Fireworks flying

under the radar.

Silver feather-

explosions of wing

twist in and out

of sight as they swing

left and right

deflecting sunlight.

Their clouds flash

on a watery mirror

and bounce off

each other’s reflections

until they drop

in a downpour

of spilling shadows

pecking the shore.
