Gossamer Wings

Watching Seagulls drifting air currents, my arms stretched wide.

Muscles soft, mind adrift.

Tracing patterns with gossamer wings.

About maskednative

I live in Ireland, in an extended cottage overlooking Waterford Estuary, privvy to constant changes of light on water, colour and movement, tides and people. I am anglo-Irish and although my initial intention was to live here for a year and a day, I am still here, a blow-in to these shores for the past fifteen years. There have been countless times when I wanted to run back to England with homesickness and relief, but for one reason or another, so far, it has not been possible. I surrender, the soul of Ireland has captured me, allowed a glimpse of the world behind the mask of everyday experiences, bringing forth a mixture of words and pictures from an ordinary everyday life, filled with ordinary everydayness that I offer as a celebration, to the creator of this truly wonderful planet.

  1. Yes, the mind, that mysterious part of our existence…and then I think of that Swiss psychiatrist by the name of Carl Gustav Jung…and this quote from him: “Who looks outside, dreams; who looks inside, awakes.” Thanks, Teri, for the nice poem.

    Yes, It was a good day, dancing with seagulls, flying without wings, joined in the spirit of oneness.
    Thank you Virgilio, for your presence to my poem.

    Gossamer drifting, wide open arms, soft heart, on the wing….this to me feels light, and free, Teri. An unburdening, somehow. Thanks for sharing the loveliness. xx

      Just getting back to you on this Sirena, you always give me an interpretation that shows me another perspective. In accepting the freedom of a spiritual flight, unburdoning, was a gift also. Thanks for your insight xx

  6. It is so good to fly, and feel the beat of Wings 🙂 .. I have often on a clear day when at the coast set my sights upon the gulls and been up there with them swooping and calling..
    Beautiful post Teri.. ❤
