Yr Wylan means seagull

The 14th-century Welsh bard Dafydd ap Gwilym addresses and esteem in a love poem seagulls flying over the waves, relating it to, among other things, a gauntlet, a boat at a port, a sea lily, and a religious sister.

Presently living in a city where there always seems to be noise and my soul needs a break I like to go to Marine Drive. There are many possibilities to distract me and to find some inner silence. When my eye catches the seagulls, my inside reaches out to find this silence and stillness.

Many things in our lives can throw us into a state of anger. Many things in our environment can and do irritate us. There are various social pressures we want to revolt against, but in watching the flying birds, I find the peace to forget all and just relax.
