Squalling seagulls sip the morning sunshine Greeting new sun, spanning over vast sea Wailing upon hills, watching freedom shine Sprinkling over prairies echoes of glee Greeting new sun, spanning over vast sea Sailing air on pointed bills and webbed feet Sprinkling over prairies echoes of glee Grabbing fish, hunting crabs, feasting on treat Sailing air on pointed bills and webbed feet Circling green oceans, conquering blue sky Grabbing fish, hunting crabs, feasting on treat Reigning winds, above the cliffs, thrusting high Circling green oceans, conquering blue sky Traversing sunlit designs, boasting zest Reigning winds, above the cliffs, thrusting high Flaunting flexing wings of enchanting quest Traversing sunlit designs, boasting zest Glancing marigold scenes on amber arc Flaunting flexing wings of enchanting quest Eyeing gilded tides where golden rays spark Glancing marigold scenes on amber arc Wailing upon hills, watching freedom shine Eyeing gilded tides where golden rays spark Squalling seagulls sip the morning sunshine December 10, 2019 Placed first: Seagulls poetry contest; Sponsor: Eve Roper Ten syllables per line (howmanysyllables.com) Placed 2nd: Strand special 9 by Brian Strand Placed 2nd: Your best December poem poetry contest by John Hamilton

An excellent write and example of showing and not telling. I felt like I was looking through the eyes of the seagull. Happy new year Vijay!

This is beautiful Vijay: The pantoum form really captures the seagulls in flight. It was Ike standing and watching them swoop. Mesmerizing, Best, SuZ

You did this really well Vijay... It's always difficult to keep to a syllable count and have rhyme... This one flows very well. When I first started doing contests, I used to encourage these types of pantoums..
