April poetry challenge day 12

Today’s poem for Paul Brookes’ April challenge is inspired by Sanderling by John Law. You can see all the images and poems here.

Bird on the beach


Timeless the sands
where cloud-birds sail
gull-waves fold soft as doves
foam and feathers
in pale sun-washed pebbles
shell-bleached
and crushed into crumbs
scattered to pigeons.

I used to do lots of things I didn't much enjoy. Now I am officially a writer. It's what I always wanted to be.

      1. Thank you, Jane! I am really awaiting summer, and summer feelings. At least you have the vineyards, but we only have the stones. These only show the summer when they get warm. 😉
