About the Poem

I live in the city and there always seems to be "noise." At times when my spirit needs a break and my eye catches a lonely seagull, my inner being reaches out to find silence and peace. What a gift to receive.

Gift Of The Seagull

A lonely seagull flies the winds
Majestic... soaring...gliding wings
A single screech sounds from the sky
Come fly with me... come here and fly

My spirit floats to be a part
I feel the beating of its heart
My soul, one with this bird of sea
Now knows the meaning to fly free

I feel the winds caress my soul
And soar the streams without a goal
My being trembles of delight
A treasure I received tonight

The seagull's flight of soaring high
The gift of what it means to fly

this poem allowed me to think of someone rescuing you when you felt down,someone taking your had and saving you form your emptiness. this being accurate,i don't know, but to me the sign of a good poem is one than enables you interpret what you can and take from it what you will. great. thanks
