silver moon to golden glow
dawn of a new year

Silver dawn awakes
the new day is born again
innocent and fresh

Startled

blinding confusion
uncharacteristic light
a startled owl blinks

tide of perfection
enhancing natural gifts
windswept harmony

Seagulls

Catching the sea breeze
white wings glide above the waves.
Seagulls soar... Freedom!
