Things Not Seen
By Mark Turbyfill
 
From “Voluntaries”

THE SEA-GULL poises
In the charged, expectant air.
 
The sea-gull poises
With delicate resistance.
 
Its sheer conscious being        5
Is cause to strike creation
Out of all this emptiness.
 
The sea-gull waits,
Wavering slightly
Against this mighty immanence.        10
 
So does my heart wait
For the release of a substance
Not yet seen.
