SEAGULL


SEAGULL WATCHING AND WAITING OUT MY WINDOW THE SEAGULL SOARS UP AND CIRCLES AS IF IT WAS A EAGLE ALL IN ITS GLORY BELOW IS THE PATCHES OF GOLD, BROWN, AND GREEN UP IN THE AIR IS ALL THE BRIGHT BLUE SKY THE WIND IS BLOWING AND THE SILENCE IS EVIDENT AND ALL I NEED IS IN MY MIND WATCHED A MOVIE ON SPEED AND LIFE VERSES DEATH AS I WAS EATING A FRIEND STOPPED BY SAID DO YOU WANT TO GO SIT BY THE DOCKS NORMALLY I WOULD SAY YES KNOWING WHAT IT MEANT CHATTING AND WINE HOWEVER I WAS PROMISED A VISIT FROM MY DAUGHTER SO I WAIT FOR HER TO SHOW ME THE RING AS SHE IS NOW ENGAGED THE OTHER DAY SHE SAID I SAW A PICTURE OF A PEACOCK AND IT REMINDED ME OF YOU ALL YOUR COLORS AND HOW YOU SHINE IN MY MIND I WAS THAT IS WHERE I WOULD LOVE TO BE YET SOMEDAYS I FEEL LIKE THE SEAGULL SOARING IN THE SKY LOOKING FOR ITS WAY TO SURVIVE MINUTES GO BY LIKE HOURS AND THE SEAGULL AGAIN COMES BACK AROUND THEN FLIES OFF SO MAYBE I AM A LITTLE OF BOTH LIKE MY HEART SITTING HERE BEATING AND KNOWING WHY WE ALL DO WHAT WE CAN TO SURVIVE ITS JUST HOW WE ARE EVEN WHEN UP AGAINST UNBELIEVABLE ODDS THE WILL IS A STRONG THING LIKE A FLOWER IN BLOOM EVEN WHEN THE EDGES ARE WILTED AND THERE ARE HOLES IN IT CAUSE THE INSECTS HAVE GATHERED FROM IT ALL THEY CAN SO THEY CAN CONTINUE AND BRING NEW LIFE LATER WE ALL HAVE OUR REASONS AND SOMETIMES THINGS ARE OUT OF OUR HANDS AND WE DON'T HAVE CONTROL OF THAT DIRECTION YET WE MAKE IT AS WE CAN TO BE THE HAPPINESS AMONG THE HELL CAUSE THERE IS NO MORE PRECIOUS THING IN THE WORLD THAN KNOWING WE ARE ALIVE BREATHING AND USING ALL OUR SENSES IN AND OUT OF THE RHYTHMS THAT MAKE IT ALL WORTHWHILE FROM THE FLOW OF A BRUSH TO THE COLORS IN OUR EYES THE LIGHT SHINES BRIGHTER WHEN THE LIFE IS FULL OF LOVE
