The seagulls fascinate me
As they fly from ocean to sea,
In the sky.
The gulls bring me a smile and delight,
And some within depth of any storm fight.
The gentle strangers
Are the earth angels.
When I was a young girl,
I wished I could sour
From the seashore
Through the air with seagulls and whirl.
It is fun to watch the graceful birds,
As they sail over the blue waters.
It stirs my emotion
By captured imagination.
The carefree birds call
Is anything but boring at all,
And for this, "Thank you, gulls! -
I got you a plastic bag with bread-crumbs."
I learned, what we should give and make,
Not, what we can take.
Every day brings me the light from the darkness
And inner grace of the rightness.
