Here is an improvisation played on alto recorder in the pentatonic scale.

I hope you enjoy this relaxing improvisation! Please feel free to share your thoughts!

A seagull soars above the beach
In search of fresh and fragrant fish
Or maybe crispy, crunchy chips!
You can’t avoid his dive and reach!

And yet they do approach the land,
Perhaps to steal what’s in our hands
To soar again in sheer delight!
