Freedom Curtailed

Seagulls fill the air with joy
anchored sailboats tug
want to be free...

sail around the world alone,
just as a Japanese fishing vessel did
ending up on the shores of Canada.
Alas, caught by the coast guard as it
prepared to sail for Chile and Peru.
Anchored in a lonely bay -
waiting for its captain to catch up.
This slavery of navigation, yet it
had a year of freedom. 
Seagulls fly, sleek bodies white as snow,
a storm is brewing
and the ocean is theirs alone.
