Gulls

circle the wind
screaming messages
of a lost era,
ancient mariners
revisiting the dock,
seafaring people
navigating the Ribble’s tides
bringing messages
of salt and water,
white, black winged
in yellow piercing bills,
hear them tell of the deep
beyond the ninth wave.

Gulls, Riversway Dockland
