On The Death Of A Seabird

 Common Murre


This bird
Washed ashore.

Feathers and beak
Imprinted
Dying snow angel
In the sand.

One of many
Hundreds
Thousands
Who will mourn?


Note: there is an unprecedented number of seabirds dying off the Pacific Northwest Coastline. Scientist are not sure of the cause, whether it is climate change, El Niño, blue green algae toxins or some combination of all three.
