Black backed gull

The swimming dusk returns,
Moon locks
Sleepers into a singular
Dream, tides are
Like the echoing breath
Of ancestors 
Drowning towards heaven.
The black backed
Gull will raise its 
Young, wings will sing
Two different songs
About procreation on a 
Burning earth, needles
Have been turned 
Upside down, who
Will guide the 
Eco systems delicate
Thread through disparate
Eyes as dreamers are
Led through the
Wreckage of an ark.
Sun's ghost circles
Gull's offspring.

Barry, this an expansive feel to it, a wistful ode to the innocence of life springing into being in the swirls of the Sixth Great Mass Extinction.  Very moved.

Thanks (I think!),
