Gregg Dotoli- A Poem

Swift Summer Flight

there's a calmness 
in watching sandpipers
zooming in tandem
over the summer ocean
searching and playing as one
not a flock but in harmony as one 
yes the whole is greater than the sum
flash-turning diving up and around
coordination genius
a miracle in wings
landing simultaneously
on golden warm shelled sand
teamwork taught by Mother Earth 
a lesson humanity dangerously failed 
as we gaze at our eco-sick planet
