Seagulls roost - John C Lloyd & George Sandifer-Smith
Each day, seagulls roost a little
inland, in the tree. They rise, meet me
when light begins to cross the road
in the eyeline of my windows.
They follow the route
to a grass corner where rustling,
my bag of hardening bread provides
another breakfast, a new day.
