Passing pleasantries

fullsizeoutput_1998

I overheard a conversation
above me in the sky
as two seagulls passed up in the blue
casually flying by
But as I am not fluent
in ‘Gull’ I’m sad to say
that I have no idea
of what was said there yesterday

But judging by their faces
I am pretty certain that
a pleasantry was there exchanged
during their short chat
“Hello Steve, a lovely day”
“Yes John, I quite agree”
“Are you going fishing later?”
“Great, I’ll see you out at sea”

I’d like to think that’s what was said
above as down below
Exchanging words of greeting
with others that we know
A passing word, a little smile
goes a long, long way
and can make quite the difference
to the pleasure of a day

    Nice to think the gulls might talk civilly to each other.

    A very different topic for a poem. I really enjoyed it. I’m sure birds and all animals converse with one another.

    Jem writes about the Sussex coast and countryside where he lives. I really liked this seagull conversation.
