Capturing a smile

I watched a seagull on the shoreline today

And, as he went soaring, I believe I was heard to say

That this singular moment was spectacular

Probably to myself and no-one in particular

Because, apart from the lapping sea

And an empty expanse of sand

And the seagull up in the sky

I was alone in that moment, and

It was special, exquisite, a captured smile

Lingering with the taste of salt on my lips for a while
