31 May: Some Days

Some Days

A seagull landed on my roof.
It looked around and around.
Doesn’t necessarily mean
it’s a lighthouse though.

Some days I’m a lighthouse.
Some days I’m the sea.
Some days I want to drown,
and I confuse myself when I float.

  3. One of my groans was:
    – why are they called sea-gulls?
    – cos otherwise they’d be bay-gulls.

    1. I needed an image with impact, as I felt the poem was rather blasé.
