White On White - Poem by Andy Sutcliffe

White birds against whiter sky
Lifted by thermal fly on high
Soaring gliding
On warm air rising
Outstretched wings
Freedom riding
Free from acquiescent binding
A soliloquy of silent gliding

Reaching ever higher
Twisted sails
Of dreamed desire
Imaginary forces
Hanging on transparent wire
White birds that never tire.

Poet's Notes about The Poem

I was watching gulls against a flat cloudy sky.
