Watching the sudden seagulls in the garden, I wondered what brought them here as we are miles from any seawater.  We have had  a lot of flooding water but they’re not interested in that.  Perhaps it seems a more sympathetic environment but I think if they stayed too long, the magpies would gang up on them.  A foggy, wet November afternoon with seagulls like snowflakes.


                                     ALWAYS OUT THERE

Those seagulls in our garden
Are a long way from water.
Doing what we all do, I suppose,
Looking for a future
Just a little bit better.
