Fruitful Journey

Spreading the strong wings
The gulls are gliding high
Over the vast ocean
Whose furrow – like waves
Are playing
With the golden rays of the sun.

No storm violent
Can break
Their fruitful journey;
No turmoil of the waters
Can be hindrance
On their golden path.

Of illusive and ephemeral ships
Cannot compel them
To repose
For a while;
As they have taken
A firm resolution
In their hearts
To decline their invitations.

With unshakable faith
To cross the attractive ocean,
Sooner or later,
The gulls are heading,
Keeping in their eye – balls
One point only
In the horizon,
Where the immense sky kisses
The gilded waves of the ocean.
