All along the shoreline

Are clusters of flowers 

Between dunes and tideline

Tiny oases I cannot name -

Some stems succulent like rock cacti 

Others spidery as thyme -

Each one an island

Our feet ferry between -

Each bearing gifts and cargoes

To the seeking bees -

How deep the roots must reach

So many tongues pass by them.
