Laughing Gull

Craving compassion
I seek the wisdom
of the river –

Her glimmering waters
reflect sun’s warmth
I am at once calmed

and uplifted –
seagull raises his wings
emits an ungodly chuckle.

(Image, my own, is not actually a Laughing Gull, but the title fits.)

Permission to write, paint, and imagine are the gifts I gave myself when chronic illness hit - a fair exchange: being for doing. Relevance is an attitude. Humour essential.

      1. The All About Birds site has some really good recordings. They have a very interesting sound, distinctively a laugh, not at all like the gull sound I’m used to!
