WIND-BLOWN NOTEBOOK LEAVES

The wind rifles my pages,

But I’d stay out here for ages…

The sunlight mild

And leaves whipping wild,

Are stuff of artists and sages!

Men and women add

Layers–not so bad…

Gusts turn cold

Making old,

People miss what they had.

Seasons keep turning around,

Soon snow and cold abound…

Snow flakes flying

Over seagulls crying,

For scraps along the ground!

–Jonathan Caswell

DO NOT FEED THE BIRDS.

DO NOT FEED THE BIRDS.

A sign in plain sight

Points to seagulls’ plight…

Do not feed,

Encourage the breed,

They’ll pester you day and night!

In a WENDY’s parking lot,*

Think of all the junk food they’ve got…

Their “lips smack”

At every snack

They scavenge at that very spot.

Seagulls come inland

Upriver to instinct’s command…

For a couple of years

Survival with peers

Before frolic in ocean sand.

–Jonathan Caswell
