Seven Seagulls and One Blustery Day At The Beach

seven seagulls abiding time
at my cistern feet

overburned and lucid they
wander like an aimless battalion
pecking and grinning
a ceaseless buzz of churning gobbles and croaks
pancakes of tide and salt water
spread out from the great Deep and
I am left to muse at the wonder of it all.

one blustery day
at Heaven’s well
crunchy sand and billowy plows
dig furrows beneath me

and the seven sisters dance and spew
a garble of lovely charms
swallowing me up in their chivalry
swallowing me up in their gaze.

    Pancakes!!! So perfect.
    Also love “Heaven’s well”.

  2. This is a wonderful description of the wonder of it all with what might seem like a small piece of life, but what a scene that is painted. I loved this one.
