Light rains
Prickle river-ocean waters
Like millions of
Baby alligator eyes
Cradling breath
With life-preserving song
PeeDee marshes filter
Salts of primordial
Ocean mother
Back to bated breath
Imbibe and rejoin
Enduring father
I take out baited barb
And drag it along their union
The crabs follow
As do we all
The rhythmic cycle
That began on
The exact same
Note to flourish
In unity and discord
No life,
Without
Its tension
