Gulls like Diamonds in the Sky

One morning in February 2021 I sat in the front room and some gulls caught my eye. They flew over the field and the sun lit them up. They looked like diamonds in the sky so I thought I’d try and write a tanka and use some of our five senses in it.

Frozen breeze on face
Late winter sun is rising
Sparrow call for food
Gulls like diamonds in the sky
When we can still smell the fires

Happy Friday despite everything
