On this morning’s walk 

it was you celebrating the moment 

that broke through the abyss of my thoughts. 

Your laugh- so familiar- like her pleased chuckle 

that would follow a ‘how do you like them apples!’ 

it was you, Seagull, in your happy glory, 

that I marveled at when I looked up.
And also her… 

Until we meet again.

To being present to the moment and to gratitude for all of the creatures of the world – JWW
