Royal Terns, the Moon and the Sunrise

Royal Terns

Terns wonder what I’m looking at
As I return their stare.
They do not move. They’re in some groove.
I love their goofy hair.

Venus shines but in the Sun.
Mars and Jupiter
Play with the Moon, that crescent Lune,
While wakened seagulls stir.

Waves keep up their wavy stuff.
They lick sand smooth near me.
The patient Sun begins its run
With birds and Moon and sea.

Birds, Sun and Sea

I enjoy walking, poetry and short prose as well as taking pictures with my phone.

    Life takes its own course and moves on in tandem. Man would have to adjust or be left behind!

  3. Let’s see… everyone has had a chance to play with your “tern of phrase.” Now that I’ve got that out of our system… the tone of the poem is… unloaded, unwinding, unwound. It fit perfectly. Your photos are always wonderful.
