THE LONE SENTINEL

As I walk the beach a seagull a lone sentinel, announces my coming. His shrill cry beckoning, his comrades to fly. When I pass, they will return as though I'd never passed that way before. Covering my tracks with their thousand little feet. And again that lone sentinel, Posted to guard against intruders.

I like this one. I see that it was written a long time ago, and I just came across it. Just proves that our written words live on forever.

I can hear those shrill cries. Gulls are my favorite birds - great flyers, great swimmers, fishers. They can do it all. Boat owners hate, though, because they crap all over boats. As I do not own a boat, I say - "So what?" Congrats on the selection. daver
