The Sea Gulls
Strolling down a cotton candy colored beach
Watching foamy ocean waves creeping towards me
Wondering if their loud roars were warnings to retreat
Because each wave came closer and closer to my feet.
In a darkening sky I could see sea gulls circling nearby
Until they quickly landed on the beach not far from me
I wondered if they landed to watch the waves wet my feet
Or perhaps they thought I would give them something to eat.
After a while I continued my stroll noticing a fog moving in
I guess the sea gulls noticed it too because they quickly flew away
Soon they disappeared in the fog leaving me on the beach all alone
Suddenly I did what the sea gulls probably did, I headed home.
Feeling good inside as I thought about the ones I love
And the meeting of
The sea gulls and me.
