Grain by golden grain
Rolling aeolian rhythms
Erode and accrete 
Collectively dynamic and responsive
Undulating between swale and slack

The incipient head cresting
The rear weighty and established,
Assembling a home for stinging wasps
Kororā and Katipo spiders,
Interlacing silk between the flax

Serpentine crescents
Criss-cross and cascade,
Tiny insect feet leaving temporary traces
Tracking a star shaped world
Eternally struggling against collapse
