Poetry Friday: Gulls, Suspended or Caught?

Poetry Friday

Okay, both of these popped out. Which is stronger to you? Thanks! And thanks to my daughter who took the photo. :~)


The gulls
hang in the air;
buoyed on our laughter,
they weave their squeals
into our moment.


The gulls trap time.
Buoyed on our laughter,
they float
above our astonishment.

Suspended is stronger to me, although both poems are wonderful.
