Graceful Gull (Not) 

Graceful Gull (Not) 20220910 850_3417Graceful Gull (Not) The moment where a gull utterly miscalculates a wave and does a faceplant upon landing in the afternoon sun at East Matunuck Beach in South Kingstown, Rhode Island.

I was flying fast and free
I felt so fancy and so flashy
I saw a wave that winked at me
I thought I'd snatch a snack to eat
But I bungled the balance and the breeze
I plunged into the water like a flea
I did a faceplant that made me flee
The other gulls giggled at my gaffe
I had seaweed on my head and sand in my snout
I wished I could wipe out that snap
When I learned a lesson that made me pout
