I Watched a Seagull Sigh

I saw a seagull sigh

I watched a seagull sigh.

Higher and higher it sighed.

Like a jewel, I looked away,

Sawed not the many faceted

Tears in the shawl,

Weeping threads.

I wish I had an umbrella stand;

I’d sell umbrellas and origami cucumbers,

While the dog chased the shawl

As it rolled over shaving stones

And seashells sighed overhead – telling tales.
