Winter Seagulls

Early morn, gray sixth day

Of new year and decade

‘Brisk breeze’, understatement

More probably winter wind’s warning

Lest Christmas sans snowflakes

(Mild temps, mere rain—torrents)

Blur sleepy common sense ‘neath

Hoods tied tight, make us complacent

Dreaming cherry trees greening…

On unsettled pewter sky

Seagulls’ chaotic formation

Draws attention, they’re cavorting

Like origami bird kites in spring

Raucous winged puppets pulled by

Wild wishes’ invisible strings
