private beach
a seagull
rides the swells

I guess no beach is ever completely private. I feel that way about my backyard sanctuary...just when I think I'm alone, the crickets and frogs quickly tell me otherwise. :)

Lovely poem!!!

It's hard to find a beach where only gulls are and no people. A lovely image of peace and beauty.

I like it as it is, Bill!
_Too, I can read this with colloquial definitions, and gain a different perspective. Interesting! _m

Ah, Doug, I'm glad you picked up the colloquial implications of "rides the swells." That's definitely intentional.
