The Sea Gull Whirls

By Joe DiCarlo
Copyright 1990 Joe DiCarlo
A poem about the flight of the sea gull.


The sea gull whirls

with crisps of flight

and dives off curls

and cliffs of light

with harrowed waup

off rusted winch

to pluck his diamond

from the sea;

off fresh wings rises

from the seas

calling his might

his wings he frees.
