Description:
For lovers of the beautiful Wadden Sea, that stretches out along the coasts of The Netherlands, Germany and Denmark. A group for sea people.




Slight reindeer sniff at the wood's edge that frills the length of the road
and dart back into the chalky thicket of birch,
umber antlers jouncing.
Archipelago and isthmus disentangle begrudgingly, interrupted by the prodigal ooze of northern waters
one spots through breaks in the trees.
Then surmounting the dyke,
one perceives the Wadden Sea
tidal flats as a dark silver prairie, crisscrossed with tern notes and gullcries,
a pitchfork prying out the native scintilla of its reek:
cockles, periwinkles.
The blue clam, transplanted from Newfoundland
by men who sailed home with hoarded barrels, and,
on hitting the familiar coast, opened the surplus into the mouth of the Baltic.


Brian Glaser, 'Mouth of the Baltic'
