    A powerful bird - the Seagull that can boldly fly over the sea, gives the impression of a Saviour.
    Yes dear Poet Kostas, we really feel that we should be rescued by the Seagull and taken to a safe, peaceful place.
    A fantastic flight it would be. A powerful Haiku - Just like the bird.......10

    Beautiful and enigmatic, liberation through birds wings is the ultimate evocation of freedom, the dream to fly in a sheltering sky. Fantastic poem Kostas.! (Report)Reply

    The wonder of birds always is there. Gulls swooping low over the sea. What speed and splendour.

    Thank you for your comments. Always appreciated.

    'Please, take me away'

    ('So, I too can be free.')

    This is what this wonderful poem said to me.

    Lovely brevity. It invokes so many beautiful images and dreams of our beautiful country. We Greeks of course have a love affair with seagulls. (Report)Reply

    Indeed! Maybe because they can leave whenever they want! Thank you for your comment!

    Lovely haiku. Reminds me of Johnathan Livingston Seagull by Richard Bach, but you say it much more succinctly. (Report)Reply

    Marvellous haiku on the desire to be free from the shackles that bind us to the roots, life. I take seagulls as the metaphor for this desire...Lovely one.. (Report)Reply
