Seagulls spread their wings

to surf on the beach, Sun peeps

through the curling waves

that roll over and break

on shore at start of the day

Beneath a dewy sky

quietly the lake flows by

beside the rolling hills; 

– over sprawling green meadows

light and mist play hide and seek

The delicate doe 

nibbles in the meadow at

smallest sound ready to spring!
