Small Stones 39/2013

wanderers far from home-
creatures of the sea and sky –
white gulls cry above the cove
small schooling fish –
ripple the waters surface-
reflecting clouds and white feathers of gulls
bright white in the setting sun-
seabirds wheel and swoop –
above the darkening cove

A large flock of gulls has moved into our little cove the last two weeks. We have had a few in late winter before, but never this number. I love to hear their sharp cries and watch as they hover over the water and then dive to catch the schooling fish.

I wonder how long they will stay….
