Gulls you say?There must have been fifty of these wonderful birds tonight at my place. Why you ask? Geee i really don't know.Gone like the wind by 12:15amBack like the wind (loud and clear)with great intensity by 4amHah! I wonder why they swiftly, effortlessly covering great distance fly here?The freedom to go almost anywhereand they come here :)
I adored the book Jonathan Livingston Seagull when I was a lass - and I've always enjoyed watching them hover, swoop, glide, and dive. Where I grew up, they were considered a nuisance, but I didn't care - they were a lovely nuisance.To this day, I can't hear or see the word "seagull" without hearing my stepmother go on a tirade about the word - "There is no such thing as a seagull!! There are Herring Gulls, Black Back gulls, Laughing Gulls, but no seagulls!!" She demanded that, if I couldn't name the type, I simply call them gulls. Sigh, ornithologists and their need for accuracy.Lovely poem, sugar.Shade and Sweetwater,K
Ha! Gulls..... ;)
A gift came to me 2 hrs ago.Hovering over my home like a angel was a baby gull :).On my roof she/he landed with mama by her/his side.Quietly they sat waiting, just waiting. For what? I don't know ;).Swiftly, effortlessly they then flew off.But not far from me. What a fine gift for me to see.Fly, fly little birds.
Sweet birds! What a beautiful sight that must have been. Maybe the mama is teaching the little one how to recognise the human-powered gull-food vending machine that appears to operate in your area.
