Changming Yuan: "Bird vs. Sea"

As if straight from heaven
A young snowy seagull charges down
Like a lightning strike
Trying to pick up the entire ocean
With its bold beak
As the tide raises
All its fierce fists
To protect against earth’s agitation
In foamy darkness

Far away, no one seems to stand
On the beach, watching
