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 is a really moving poem which touched me with a feeling of freedom deep within!
Amazing! You feel as if the ability to fly is no longer a concept but a true reality!
I realy enjoyed this poam
Wow, this poem is great! I absolutely love it! It would seem nice to be free like that some day. if us humans can really just fly alongside the seagulls. It would be such a paradise. This Poem can only bring us hopes and dreams that one day. maybe. we all will find peace. I rate it. 9 out of 10.
this poem is so. poetic! i know that sounds so stupid, but thats the only way i could describe this poem. well, there's other words, but munda, you're u true poet. and the other words to describe this poem are beautiful. wonderful. i just wish u keep on writing these amazing poems. and i love how u make it seem like u could just fly away with a seagull. its cool. i sound so dumb right now. i dont mean to, but i love this poem! and i don't know why i love it so much. well. yeah.

I felt moved by your poem. It is beautiful and inspirational. Thank you for sharing your gift.
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
You've said so very much through your choice of words to give your poem it's special meaning. It reached right out and touched my heart. But more importantly, it gave me something beautiful to think about! Thank you
I like the meaning that I gather from reading the poem. I am sending it to my students so they use it as meaning to fly high for what they want out of life.
Beautiful, simply beautiful. Freedom expressed in it's simplest and lightest form, yet has a prfound effect to my soul. Beautiful.

I loved it. It brought up so many inspirational thoughts. Keep up the work.
this is one of those rare poems that speak to ones soul. I like it for its simple beauty, sincerity and the sense of freedom and space that it evokes in me.
I really like this poem because it just. reaches out to me. Even though a seagull is usually just a dull bird, that you see almost everywhere, something that always blends in, Munda has made it into a really amazing thing.
What I liked about your work is the realness of it. Keep up the good work I look forward to reading more of your poems.
I really liked it because of the rhythm of the words were just like the rhythm of the sea banging on rocks when the tide comes in. It was a very emotional poem which a person can read over and over again and not be sick of.

I thought this was a wonderful poem evoking both the smell and freedom of the sea and a feeling of the freedom of the spirit.
Beautiful,soring gliding, a poem worthy of elves themselves.
This poem was very touching and what it means to me is that dont feel stuck to something that bothers you or you just dont wonna be so be free and find your own way in life instead of seeking it through others dreams and not yours. Keep writing hopefully one day you will become a famous poet
A friend of mine thought I had betrayed her and now her feelings are slowly surfacing, I know she is in pain and I want to say something that will be like a whisper in her ear - and this fits. Thank you.

This was such a well written poem, I loved it! The imagery and everything about it was great! Keep it up!
This poem is so eloquently written. It really gives the reader the sense of emotion felt by its writer. I love it!
I think that this is a great poem. It's funny how sometimes we find the greatest peace in things that are so far away from us. Like the seagull that you saw. There was no way that you can ever be that seagul. but its a blessing to imagine the peace that that seagul has.
One of the best poems I have read.
Outstanding! Amazing! your ability to express yourself and your inner being is a gift which is rarely found. Keep writing and practicing and I promise you will go far!
Honor to fly free, few can see as you see.

Munda: I really enjoyed this poem. One's mind and spirit taking in a vicarious adventure of freedom is seemingly, simple, yet complex, as everyone has to deal with the realities of life. Thank you for sharing your thoughts! Freedom from our live's realities can be a sweet, and uplifting experience;)
this poem contained alot of meaning and it was beautifully written.
