Pajaro Beach

We return along Pajaro Beach.
Our footprints   
     diverge along the shore.
For a while, you drift away.
     Stop occasionally to wade the water
Or collect sand dollars.

I, on the other hand, wander ahead
  witnessing sandpipers and plover
scurry before receding waves
  retreating to the returning wash.

In time, our footprints merge.
   Haven't they always!
