Message from the seagulls....

I see around me so many instances, of folks occupying something they are not meant to. Happens all the time. Particularly amongst the power types.

And then there are folks like my friend Sylvia, who go out on a trip to the waterfront and enjoy a lunch, on a drab and grey Seattle day; and click photos of seagulls doing something similar.

Nature has so many messages for us. If we only had time to listen ....

Places bordering water ,
some bordering land,
Chain link fences :
that peacefully
sail through life,
the company
of sometimes similar folks,
and those that
and cause trouble
in places
they shouldn't
be found in...

The bird of peace,
flew in
to urge the other
to vacate
the chair;
you didn't occupy
something meant for others....

The erring bird
turned right,
and took off.

Unlike, some,
who trespassed ,
stayed put,
presumably hidden,
were warned,

and were finally shot away.

  1. The seagulls and I seemed to be sharing some similar ideas about the day!! Have you ever seen a gathering of grumpy seagulls?? The young ones are more gray than white and the older/white ones were very busy letting the young ones know where they weren't appreciated! It was fun to watch them! Thank you as always, my very dear friend!
