A perfect day (Arlington Beach 2008)

The seagulls fly
Hundreds of them
Wheeling, diving, and soaring.
“Scree, Scree,” they cry.

Waves crash on shore
Bringing a feast
Crawdads, minnows and seaweed
Enough for all

The wind, so wild
No one but me
Walking, watching, and laughing
My arms flung wide

Old guard chair stands
Beach sentinel
Guarding, staying, and aging
A welcome seat

The gulls and I
Lift our voices
Calling, singing, rejoicing
A perfect day
