The Seagull

The Seagull

Under a warm, generous sky

shared by moon, stars, sun and sea

the seagull watches

with an enchanted eye

dawn’s perfect synergy.

While others preen, flock and fly

still

the seagull watches

with that ever watchful eye.

As the moon fades

to brighten another darkened sky

the seagull watches,

through a glassy clear eye.

And when the sun, too, settles

into the embrace of the sea

she returns to the edge

undaunted, undeterred,

by this familiar infidelity.

She knows

a new dawn breaks

beyond the sea

and so

the seagull watches

and waits

expectantly.

Where ever you are, may you wake to face the sun.

As always

a dawn bird
