The Seagull’s Cry


Waves crashing high
Against the ship's hull
The wind gently blows
It's consoling touch caresses me

For no longer do the seagulls cry
Above the majestic blue
Signaling sight of ocean life
A repast, they could ill afford to lose

The random splash from life below
Is now muted, convoluted
When did it all begin
Why did we not see the outcome

My heart shifts with the wind
Skimming along the foaming caps
Like the seagulls that are no more
Sending a cold jolt to my heart

The repercussion, chain of destruction
As realization sets in
No longer do the seagulls cry
No longer do they cry
