Keeping track of her sea,


Ocean waves breaking around her,


Within sight of mans ever widening world,


Looking at the photographer, me…

Through summers of heat & sun,

Eventually from a local fisherman,


She may a fish steal…

A wonderful write for a misaligned bird. For all the bad publicity, all she wants is to feed her family and live. Thanks Ed.
