a seagull poem

Larus argentatus

herring gull


natural vacuum cleaner bird.

A rubbish eating pest.

Grey backed glider.

Coastal dwellers moved into town,

protected under law ?

still culled and hated.

But beauty in flight,

wingtip to tail.

Grey backed glider,

hoarse from your raucous call.

I've been tidying up my photos and other word type documents on my external hard drive and found this and a few more. This and the others were inspired by the photographs of Simon Humphries....

anther one tomorrow.
