a curlew striding along the shoreline in front of rolling waves

 

a curlew passes
a gull, an oystercatcher
residing on the sands
a life of understanding
the song between the waves

Tanka: A Curlew’s Calm

 

a curlew with feathers blown by the wind striding through shallows beside a seagull

 

feathers straightened
a curlew strides along the shore
so calm, so kind
the waves continue to roll
with the wind, the wild weather
