Updated on February 13, 2017

Words, wordplay, reading, and writing have been favorites of Liz's since early childhood. She enjoys exploring science and science fiction.

The Seagull

Source

Wings of fog and slate,

Stretching toward distant horizons.

Banking, circling, leaning;

Perfect balance

And effortless grace,

Motionless motion;

Resting, reclining,

Carried at will

On gossamer air.

Enters Night

Source

Lone gull

On empty dunes;

Setting sun,

Ebbing tide.

Discarded footprints

Along the shore,

Freshening breeze

Stirring grass;

The soft silent sounds

Of night slipping in.

    These lovely poems brought beautiful images of sand and sea. How wonderful to soar on "wings of fog and slate."

    Beautiful DzyMsLizzy. It made me wish that I could fly above the beach and feel the breeze as I soared along the shore. I voted up, shared and pinned it.

    Hi, bravewarrior!

    Thank you so very much; delighted you liked this pair. In my binder, these are on separate pages, but I stuck them together here as they seemed well-matched, and, to lengthen the Hub a bit towards HP standards of preferring lengthier articles. LOL...even though this is not a poetry-friendly site for the most part. ;-)
