Word Prompt: Seagulls

Prancing around the sand, chests puffed with pride over ownership of the coast along which they roam. Kings of their beach. Scavengers of what isn’t theirs. They take sandwiches and french fries. Poop on those plebes who don’t share or who appear as though they’re having too much fun. Squabble with their greedy peers when they try to encroach on their territories.

“This is my land! Don’t you see my castle over there?!” they squawk at the webbed enemy who tiptoes too close to his neighbors’ property line.

The poor, dilapidated castle, built on weak foundation, sags under the sun’s watchful glare. The looming tide will inevitably claim it as its own. The displaced seagull will have to find another home.


About 365 Things to Write About

I'm inspired by almost anything and everything creative - nature, architecture, art, words, music...I like to roam along streets, through foreign countries, and within my mind where the world is full of endless possibilities. I dream of being an idealist, but I've experienced too many harsh realities for that wish to ever be true. Therefore, I look for the hope and the good in small nuances, and I express my thoughts and feelings about the world around me on pages and canvases whenever I can.
