Ever listen to the cries of seagulls while you’re near or on the shore? Very comforting!

Call of the Seagulls


The seagulls scream loud in the sky,
They circle ’round and up so high;

Against a sky of blue so pale,
The sun a backdrop for their yell;

Mostly white, with some dirty gray,
They ride air currents all the day;

Hunting, seeking for crumb or two,
They seek, they sight in on a cue;

Beautiful, majestic – their flight,
Seeking sustenance in delight;

These birds of the sea and the shore,
Scavenge garbage til ’tis no more;

Listen carefully to their scream,
It means they’re working at the clean.

I swear I was at the sea as I read this lovely work of art. As the ceiling fan's breeze brushed by my shoulders, well done! As always, thank you for sharing.:)
