The Chase

The sandpiper flirts with the rolling surf 
racing back and forth
along the frothy
of the sea's body
searching amid the rise and fall
of the relentless tide
for something missed

returning to its starting place
to begin again
the tireless task
of an endless chase 
until twilight erases
all evidence 
of what was left behind

I needed a beach scene for my post today.  I have been bed-bound since Thursday after arthrocopic surgery to remove debris and half my meniscus in my left knee.  This is the third scope surgery on my knees over the last 15 years.  Oy!  But I'm feeling quite good today and up and about without crutches.  There is just so much CSI and Law & Order a girl can watch!
