Evening's Ascent

    later, a pair of sea birds
    (terns, I think)
    over Washington Channel
    bodies straight, wings swallowing
    searching, seeking
    suddenly, a fearless vertical dive!
    splash, muffled croak of victory
    rising, rising
    consort to evening's ascent:
    crescent moon;
    contrail-sculpted sunset
