I was on the beach and observed a sand crab. It was during Memorial Day weekend, and I was fascinated by this crab amidst all the excitement as the beginning of summer unfolded.


Sand fiddler by Mary Lou Jacinto


The hot sun beats down

People all around none the wiser

And from my peripheral vision;

 An image then gone.

Feel the heat on my shoulders

Sweat runs down my neckline

And from my peripheral vision;

An image then gone.

Children looking to quench their thirst

The waves gently crash the ocean’s shore

And from my peripheral vision;

An image then gone.

Shift my chair toward the sun’s rays

I notice a disturbance in the sand

And from my peripheral vision;

An image then gone.

Staring at the glistening sand

Blocking out the commotion

And what was my peripheral vision;

The image then gone.

The hot sun beats down

Unaccompanied I spot disturbance in the sand

Created by the side-line vision

The image then gone

Intrigued I spot a hole and watch

As sand flies from its opening

And staring at it steadfast

The image appears, then gone

Isolated I quietly approach

And wait for my opponent to emerge

No longer from my peripheral vision

A crab! Claws busy then gone.
