Schoodic Seagull

I met this seagull on one of my summer excursions to beautiful Schoodic Peninsula in Down East Maine. It's one of my favorite places...and one of his, too, I think. We shared lunch. Here's some cool painting music. Here's to peace, love and unity!

A Seagull's Worth

The seagull, wary of
the artist's brush,
posed for the artist
and his brush with greatness,
immortalized forever,
but scowling at the thought,
"What? Only a hundred dollars?
For me? I'm worth more than that.
You're giving me away.
If you going to do that
at least give me to a museum
for the beautiful colors
of these brush-stroked feathers
belong there and are way
too fine to give away for...
only a hundred dollars!
