Words about Seagulls

I have written of seagulls
(Well, I would, wouldn’t I?)
As, living in Sussex
you’ll oft hear their cry

They’re as much of a part
of a life by the coast
as the people who live here
The sea playing host

They’re loud and they’re boisterous
with exuberant glee
Born from the thrill
we all get from the sea

And I love every one of them
living down here
As their call and their antics
bring laughter and cheer

So here’s to the seagulls
up there in the clouds
I’m pleased I live with you
May my words do you proud

Clarity III

And the light this morning
emulates a clarity anew
Captured on the coast road
as I pass with clear sea view
Pastel pinks and subtle blue
Oranges and yellow
confirming absolutely that
I am a lucky fellow

Big Sky III

With a big sky over mudflats
out in the estuary
The rain it seems has left us
momentarily

And there are glimpses there of sunshine
in amongst the grey
with blue sky poking through the clouds
to make a brighter day

It’s a promise we will cling to
for the sun is everything
Particularly after rain
with the warmth that it will bring

Blessed

Felt blessed down on the beach front
as night time slipped away
And through the clouds out to the East
the sunshine met the day

Golden over water there
far as my eye could see
A really big sky, colour-filled
came and welcomed me

Big Sky

With a sky as big as big can be
we walked beneath the blue
Grey clouds skidding quickly past
keeping the sun in view
All we could feel was Springtime warmth
meandering on our way
As Hampshire’s Meon Valley came
to meet the end of day
The big sky stayed as evening came
and we rested with a beer
Hoping that the morrow would
stay fine and just as clear

Steel Grey

Mirrored under morning sky
Steel grey silent waters lie
Cold and motionless are they
Heralding a winter’s day

Reflected under morning sky
Blue and fragrant waters lie
Cool and freshening are they
Heralding a springtime day

Basking under morning sky
Undulating waters lie
Warm and welcoming are they
Heralding a summer’s day

Storm-filled under morning sky
Swiftly moving waters lie
Windswept and exciting they
Heralding an autumn day
