creative thinking ~ greener living
I suppose a herring gull always looks noble to another herring gull.Or maybe they just don't give a damn.This catches the transforming power of light very well.
To make a conversation on herring gulls, one of my poems on them, many as you can imagine live in my area, in Venice; sorry if it's not so short:HERRING GULL( or Van Gogh at his waking )Its cackling at dawn is an axethat cuts you from the last scrap of a dream.The blue blade through the shutteris a severe awakening.In a flash you take inthe drop of red on its yellow beakand its eye staring in the early sky.Gone is the root of your being,the stalk you grabbed in the night field,the jagged hem of the flower that made perfect sense.The cackling grows into a volleyand asks for another grabbing,the luminous and bitterjagged edge of the start,the day in an unquenchable thirstand your dread of its hanging openness.Now the cackling harboursin the throbs of a vast howl,you hear even the steeples nodding,the whole air getting stung,the day’s shore coming forwardwith a blue hunger.It’s time. You stare at a beamof sunlight on the ceilingand are gripped by the furrows of the momentruthlessly blooming, memory and desirestaring in a lingering gust,you hear the howl spreadingand blending with the nearingsea of May light, a countenancethat wants to overlap.You get up.
Maybe, I am not a fan of gulls. I like the poem, though.
Love it. I don't know herring gulls, but I find gulls fairly noble looking.
__Soooo many Herring Gulls here, and such a society they maintain...that elite nobility, to a super-market, parking lot tramp. I love 'em. __They linger, wherever some sort of food can be found.parking lotthese herring gulls clamordonut shop_m
Despite the Herring gull controversy a lovely point has been revealed. Like the new banner too.....
golden evening light can illuminate nature in a positive light, can't it? wonderful ku. have a great day.
In this evening's golden light we had four Reddish Egrets stop for awhile in a fallen tree beside the river--lovely! Your verses make me see more deeply.-kay
