a gust of wind


With every gust of wind
the waves grow high
sandpiper runs…

With every gust of wind
I feel the cooling breath
you're close, autumn.

The waves grow high
why waiting long
to fall in latter.

Sandpiper runs
to pick up a worm
from jaws of an ocean.

With every gust of wind,
the waves grow high
a day set in motion...

  21. It is so relaxing to see this happen and every now and then the sandpiper will glance your way to make sure you are not too close and if you stand up it will fly a little way down the beach just to keep you at a safe distance.
