Cinereous seagulls drift in the overcast sky
like discarded plastic bags half-camouflaged
against the clouds.
The inlet, a turquoise blue on sunny
A lone grebe dives furtively. The peaceful water
Large rocks cling to the edge
Even the gravel pathway, rarely noticed
Rain falls quietly.
Calm, cold, and cloudy is this singular day
