Complexity of stillness

in the stillness
there is cacophony
inside my head

I seek company
of strangers on the beach
but seagulls come and sit with me

they peck and pet me
I like the role reversal
of birds caring for me

"if only humans did that"

I like the seagulls coming to sit with you on the beach.

Seagulls get a lot of bad press in the UK but I love how caring they are, how their chicks are raised and taught to fly by the whole community and how they watch over us. A gorgeous quadrille that shows their kindness :o)

Seagulls have that duality of being both pest and a caring creature... just like rats actually.

They are so noisy and just want your food...but they can keep you company, smiles ~
