The Throne

On the edge of the sea not far from my abode

There is a big stone, high and dry in a cove

Iíve watched a Seagull sit upon that stone

A place he quite clearly thinks is his throne

Other gulls have tried to share this rock

But with a shrill he scared away the flock

Now in solitude without a friend or brood

He scans the clear water surface for some food

He stands in regal splendor as waves roll by

Keeping a sharp look out with his steady eye.

Today, the chance of a small morsel floating by

Does not look very promising, I hear him cry

Soon he will abdicate this regal throne

As the sea once again reclaims itís stone.

Iíll come another day and watch this again

If the weather permits and it does not rain.

Author's Notes:
As a photographer I have shot many photos over the years of this seagull on this rock and sat a wondered about his view on his life.
