You are too far away from me
for me to take a decent picture of you;
and to get you to come any closer
will cost me – you are no charity –
a chip, at the least,
preferably a feast,
if I want to get some clarity.
But, I mustn’t feed the seagulls,
the signs do tell me that,
and I take notice of the signs;
so I focus on you, distantly,
and capture you all blurred;
I’ll just have to keep on trying
to picture you, sea bird.
Somewhere in the UK.
No, I am not lost again. I saw this and thought of… taking a picture of it.
So, where is it? If you know, please tell me and I shall award you with a no-holds barred critique of one of your posts (your choice which one) just for fun really. G:)
The trouble with birds is…
They won’t sit still – even for a minute
So, if I’m trying to take a photo
Of a lark or a linnet
By the time I’ve pressed the shutter down the birdies are just not in it!
“Watch the birdie!” Ha! What’s to show
From my photographs – maybe a crow
Or a pigeon will be my best shot.
I’ve taken loads of pictures – and they fly from the lot!
Take fright; take flight; here’s the thing
There’s not much to show when them twitterers take wing.
