Straight From Heaven

A beach is a perfect setting for mindfully watching nature. A seagull's intensity caught the attention of this poet.

Bird vs. Sea

As if straight from heaven

A young snowy seagull charges down

Like a lightning strike

Trying to pick up the entire ocean

With its bold beak

As the tide raises

All its fierce fists

To protect against earth’s agitation

In foamy darkness

Far away, no one seems to stand

On the beach, watching
