Seagulls at Night

Details

A twilight canvas 
barren of light 
prelude to the masterpiece 
hovers unseen 
upon desolate skies 
waiting to be fashioned. 

Out of darkness 
they emerge 
white winged choreographers 
painting circles 
and breeding life. 

Seagulls at Night soar 
faithfully 
indiscriminately 
a free form phenomenon.
