Artist's Description

Let me fly free
above the shimmering sea,
into the soft embrace
of gathering clouds
and feel their freshness on my face.

Wind has no colours,
so it can gently blow
the subtle hues of setting suns
into the rays that light
the heavens and the sea below.

Let my free spirit soar
above the islands and the dunes,
above the waves and surging surf.
Air currents ’neath my outspread wings
will carry me to heights unknown.

I live to fly -
or is it that I fly to live?
What then, will be my fate
when I can fly no more?
Oblivion? Or, knowing I have flown?

~~~~~~~~~~~~

These words suggested by watching a slowly setting sun and solitary seagull, soaring over the Penguin Sanctuary island at Beachport, on the Limestone Coast of South Australia, which I visited earlier this year. You may need to see larger to see the seagull…
