ballet of the gulls

The graceful torrent of feathers
fast-beating a chorale
in the morning air
enticed by anti-aircraft crusts
propelled in the laughter
of bank-side children.  
A ballet of the gulls,
wing├Ęd dancing above a river stage,
the music of flowing -
a clustered instrumental
of flight.
Like courtiers
in adept manipulation of fans
they surround themselves
in complex geometry.
