seabird

 

IMG_5860feathers gray, feathers white
wailing under golden sunlight

along the coasts, you have flown
oceans and skies of deep cerulean

this California gull, a larus californicus
bird of the sea, floating high above us

traveling far, or residing quite near
an ocean beneath, your destiny clear
