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
