~Sandwich Tern



Whats on your mind little tern, 

standing at water’s edge in the early morning light,

as you watch the gulf waters churn. 

With waves pounding the shore, 

luring you with its rhymed verse, 

hunger and fading light brings signs of yore.



Back in October, 2014…

As I walked along the shore, hoping to watch the sunrise, I came upon this Sandwich Tern. He, just like me, was all alone on this particular morning and together we watched the day begin.

I think this is an adult non-breeding bird. Notice the yellowish bill tip.

Jumped right in.
This Sandwich Tern gave me a gift on this morning; he was number 375.
