Your poem conjures a loving couple enjoying a nature filled sun streaked walk on a beach as the sea gulls dip and soar over an ocean.
Then a lone figure returns and seeing the seagulls she is nostalgically remembering and her spirit soars with the birds while she once again clings to the hope of a reunion. That is the poignant message I see in your artful writing.

Your poem reminds me of the northern part of our state. You go down by the lakes and there are sea gulls flying everywhere. Then they'll swoop down for some food. Hungry. Love the picture and your poetry.

I liked the upbeat tone you created here, the leaping lines that reached into that sky full of seagulls. You really captured the sense of hopefulness and excitement. I liked the images too. The wide open sky, the endless expanse of the sea, all speak of possibilities, and the gulls flying give it that lift. Nice job with the rhythms that sounded like the waves of the sea. That's what free verse is all about. estory

Will he or won't he? It doesn't seem likely unless he's a gull, given the surroundings. Maybe you should check out the beach for a more available he.(Since you asked.)

This poem is very lovely, descriptive, and appealing. You have made excellent use of vivid imagery, personification, and imagery. Then came the end--on a note of uncertainty. Surprised me

This is a great entry for the contest. I enjoyed reading your descriptions of soaring high on wind, love, and hope. The seaside setting is unique to this contest and a nice change. Good choice! Good job and good luck.

The sea gulls flying high over the water
dipping here and there to touch the sea
swooping when finding food close to the surface
You fly high too as the dance of the continuously

Nicely done - I can see the whole scene, even without the great photo. Being uplifted - up to the clouds - then down to splash. Nice images that you've created.
