Another Gull Engulfed


Relentless waves
Beating upon the rocks
An errant gull
Engulfed in the furious approach

Silence erupting in dismay
The crash of reality
Biting through my mind
Grasping at my heart

STOP
Dangerous waters
Trespassers
Shot on the spot

A daring rescue
but does she care
An interest of valor
But her heart remains in the rocks

The waves mount within
Resting upon my reason
Get up and get going
Another wave is ahead
