Weekly Photo Challenge: Free Spirit

Image

A little bird sits along the shore line,
Watching the many two legged creatures,
Frolicking across the sand,
Running up and down.
Splash!
Into the water they go.
As quick as they run in,
They run back out.
On a hot summers day,
The water is still briskly cool.
Quiet little bird,
Sits across the shore line.
Watching the days go by.
A soaring spirit,
Free as can be.

    Valeen, This is an engaging poem observing life from another’s perspective. I wonder how much a seagull observes me as I observe it.
