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
