Draw a Bird Day: Seagull

seagull 3s

voices in waves
sea calling gathering in
cadenced desire

Seagulls and pigeons are the main birds I see from my window.  But I hear robins every morning, and crows have started to visit the neighboring roofs as well.

This is a multiple poem posting for both Colleen’s #TankaTuesday (poet’s choice of words) and Frank Tassone’s “#Haikai Challenge #133 (twittering).  Seagulls do not twitter, so I wrote the lines above.

seagull 1s

I’ve been wanting to try a gogyoka, so for that I put in a little twittering.

sky wakes
with birds twittering dawn
stirring clouds
scattering colors
across each uncharted day

seagull 2s

Once again I’m posting for Draw a Bird Day as a place keeper for MeMadTwo until Nina gets back.  I’m doing NaPoWriMo at https://kblog.blog/

    I like words and drawings, especially the gogyoka. The birds waking and colors and clouds moving across “an uncharted day.”

    Lovely post, Kerfe. The second poem captures the daily magic of dawn with a gentle paucity of words. And I love the movement of the gulls, which I see every day, “voices in waves”, the perspective of the first drawing and the wonderful wing and tail position of the last gull. 😊

    So pretty, Kerfe, and you capture their flight beautifully. The return of the birds is always the first sign of spring around here. 🙂

    Your a wonderful poet. Maybe I should start using thesaurus too from now on, stock knowledge is not reliable at all times. LOL.
    By the way, I am a new blogger and I just recently, I made a challenge to myself. For the next 21 days I will be visiting blog put its blog link on my blog. I hope you can support me this.
    I also followed your blog.

      Thanks. Yes a thesaurus is good.
      The best way to build a following is to visit the same bloggers you like frequently and comment. That way you build up a relationship. If you are a poet I suggest participating in the prompts at dverse poets, or other prompt sites where you also interact with the same bloggers on a regular basis.

    If I have a favorite bird, it would be the Sea Gull without question. They don’t stray far from home and I am close enough to the Mediterranean that they stop by and visit on the days I don’t get down there… You do them proud.
