Chaotic Wind

Each summer I see seagulls in parking lots
And I wonder how did they get lost
The order of things not sound
For there’s no ocean found
So I surmise by the wind they were tossed  Prompt today is “Order”. Write about order in chaos. Or chaos in order. After several attempts, I succumbed to a limericks.  I think I may need a break.

    I hope those seagulls find their way back to the shore.

    They love fast food like we do. They also love earthworms, which will bring them inland.

    Landfills and fast flood joints do bring the gulls a hundred miles inland here too.


  4. I once watched something (countryfile maybe) that was talking about how far inland seagulls would go for food. I also had a biology tutor who got wound up whenever he heard us calling them seagulls, can’t remember what he said the proper name for them was. Love the use of a limerick. Thanks for the poem.

    Very nice Mary. I too have seen the gulls in places they did not belong… must be the wind!

    That has puzzled me too! I like your form, Mary.


  8. seagulls out of place and time – it is the bins not the wind that brought them! Interesting take on the prompt – thank you for joining in

    I used to see seagulls at the bus stop near my last residence. I think they just follow the food sources… (k)


  10. Seagulls have a way of finding the sea wherever there is trash… alas.

    The limerick form you used here is brilliant – a fun juxtaposition with the subject matter. Your rhymes are also excellent. I am not a fan of seagulls but I am a fan of your poem!
