Inception

The first flakes of snow
Stitched on a gray quilt of sky
Gulls soar silently.

Applique

Foggy spring morning
Seagulls embroidered in white
On the quilted clouds.

Adornment

A soaring seagull
A white cameo engraved
On the pearl-gray sky.

Gulls

Plaintive seagulls cry
Over inland parking lots
How far to the sea?

Seagull II

Gray and white seagull
With wingtips dipped in black ink
Writing on the sky.

Black Friday

Crowded shopping malls
Grudging gulls give way to cars
In their parking lots.

Flight

A soaring seagull
Gray wings shade into gray clouds
Fading like the fall.
