As the storm unleashed
its noisy seas

gathered letters
from the chattering

and harbored them 
under frond and stipe

like oysters in eddies
pooled and reefed
adding layers, one letter
at a time

until the storm softens
within their seams
passing pinnate, hand-written
into stories

to be told by ferns 
like poets bespoke
presenting their pearls
to the light.
