1767



looking a while back -
a faint line of horizon
dividing blues

those hungry seagulls
what would your mothers say
gobbling down food

stony beaches -
clear inviting waters still
lure the bathers

It is in the 50s and raining here,
I could def go for the beach. I have a feeling that
the gulls have a little different rules for table
manners. Lol.

Have a good Sunday as well g.

I would definitely enjoy being in the water at the beach more than lying on its stony shore. Smiles.
Enjoyed your word pictures today, Gillena.

This is wonderful, and I can easily relate to "a faint line of horizon/ dividing blues". Aha...That is the beauty of your poetry. It is so real. Just great stuff! Love Gillena.

LOVE the second one. I can almost see the speaker shaking her head (and perhaps her fist) at an unruly pack of birds with terrible manners. ;-)

Happiest Sunday!

Ah the blue line and hungry gulls--there are no blues on this inviting day. Is the title a year? a place? How far back can you remember?

The sea is a constant fascination and a boon for storytellers and poets. Even though you haven't been there for some time time it continues to lure you back with more stories to tell.

These are lovely. The first, I thought, particularly layered and nuanced.

Ah! Beach time! Today I saw some seagulls soaring high above... far from the beach. Just like me.

Blogger Toni Spencer said...

Even with the almost hurricane, the beach would not be friendly but I could still def enjoy it. Gulls have their own etiquette as given by Mrs. Vandergull...smiles. Like all the stanzas! Spencer is Kanzensakura

what would your mothers say
gobbling down food


Happiness of having dinner together may well be spoiled by some unsavory conducts of youngsters. Truly said Gillena!

looking for that faint line of horizon
dividing blues...some blue skies might
chase away some blue moods.

1767 hmm intersting #. We were just at the beach a couple of weeks ago... It's my husband's happy place. But it has rained nonstop here for over a week now, and that's my happy place.

Interesting perception about the horizon! Again I love the evocation of your home, which I am sure I would enjoy too.

Like reflection, 'those hungry seagulls ' line resonates ...and the way to come back, to revisit still open? then why to wait?
