Squawk Thoughts

Seagull, seagull, seagull.

Dancing on wet sand, seagulls pivot,
flap their wings above the incoming tide.


Their webbed toes tickled by foam,
seagulls give chase as the tide runs away.

I remember ...

filled nights,
our first

when time
stood still
we stopped

such delicate lace
gracing my dusty windshield
insect's fragile wing

Perseid's Eyes

sharp shiny needles
pulled from a black pin cushion

Stickler for detail note: Sweeney's photo is of the 2009 Leonid meteor shower, but it illustrated what I was thinking so perfectly that I had to use it. :)
