photo from The Guardian, Eyewitness

Clouds grey and cold
spawn birds in 
waning light on a colorless beach,
 wing flashes of
grey metal,
their wing winds cool on my fingers.

Graceful images
presage the warmer colors of Christmas.

enjoyed your observation. Like how you contrasted this, the advent, so to speak, with Christmas. Gave a strong visual.
