Just when we think we've found a bit of solitude, something comes along to spoil it... Those precious times need to be treasured when we do find them... I truly did enjoy the serenity of the moment you captured so beautifully in this poem... Well done Jan!

Heya Jan, another wonderful descriptive verse from your top drawer, seven squalling seagulls, one for every line, and every washing line, best of luck in the contest

There is a beach at the far end of our island where you often see seals bobbing up in the sea:-) hugs Jan xx

Hi Jan. This is the third pleiades poem form I've read in the last 15 minutes and it's another brilliant one. Great imagery. The sound of waves is a sound I love. Well done Jan.

I doubt Eve sprang from Adam, as women always find harmony at the seashore. In sharp contrast, men are always, "I C the C and need to wee!" Well done, Jan! Aloha! Rico

Your created the perfect scene for solitude, including the interruptions life brings. I love the "rhythmic swish" and gentle flow of your poem.

Surely a metaphor for life itself. We all have to cope with squawking seagulls in our lives. Nicely written.

I can relate up to a point with this Pleiades which is finely written. I am in too much solitude, a bit of noise would not hurt. Hugs

We love going walking in the evening when no one is around especially when we were in lockdown which meant we avoided meeting anyone on route. Out of lockdown 3 days and already 5 cases in the community ... one of which is in a primary school, but we were told it was our last 'lockdown' goodness knows how they will control this one as it spread like wildfire with the youngsters last time:-( hugs jan xx
