Paradise on Earth

A collection of poems by David Morin

Albatross

Another dawn broke over the South Atlantic Ocean

A lone Albatross skimmed across the waves

With little effort she flew up and on to the island where she met her lifetime mate. Their beaks gently touched each other

The breeding season was over. They had raised a single chick

Before long cold weather fronts would come from Antarctica

The days preceding the weather was kind

The albatross and her mate took full advantage of time

The albatross took off gracefully to the skies once more
