__A picnic lunch at Windmill Point as we watched the changing tides converge in Hull Gut, and those... sleepy gulls.  Tides and gulls act the same during any season; no kigo. 

clashing tides
they churn in envious jousts
sleepy gulls

wings over, eyes stab down
soon as you leave your towel
sharp beaks descend

gulls are lazy and peaceful
and do not care to compete
in an unending battle for supremacy~

You have taken me there too, Doug.
I am vividly seeing those clashing tides...hearing the mournful call of the sleepy gulls...aah...sheer paradise! :))
