Seagulls (from Seagull Harbour)
Module: Life Writing (Level 6)
Keywords:Poetry, Life writing
This poem has been lifted from my Seagull Harbour story on the Life Writing module. The story was about my return to a childhood holiday town, exploring the intersection of childhood memories and my adult impressions. I structured it in short sections, combining prose with occasional stanzas of poetry, taking inspiration from the Japanese form of ‘Haibun’. ‘Seagulls’ is the conclusion to the story and I think it can stand alone as a poem in its own right.
