Stella Maris Seabirds - Published by: Leaves of Ink

Stella Maris Seabirds


awake at dark

to greet the morning

seagulls and I


silence of dawn

east over the deep

we wait for sunrise


gulls flap at sun call

flit back and forth

skim the waves


yo-yos in the sky 

wings skip the edges of swells 

and dive for breakfast


nacreous sea reflects

pearlescent sky

mirrors of day


sky ripens red to pink

sea echoes pearl

singing the light


gulls ski the surf

drop in surging rollers

corks bob and float


quiet wait

for sun under water

to break free


plovers skitter

run into surf and fish

new waves push them back


birds run in and out

pan the shoreline

wet sand glistens


red orb swims water

mounts the sky

we watch


and catch a silver ribbon

cast from sea to shore 

to Stella Maris
