Pelican

I went for a visit to the Melbourne Zoo for an hour and got some pics of pelicans and other birds and animals.

  1. Dear Kathy,

    Gorgeous photo… reminded me of
    pelicans I saw at the Oregon Coast, flying together just above the waves. Amazing creatures. This poem was inspired by them.

    Pelicans

    Troubadours
    Airborne units fly in formation
    Low
    Heavy
    Skimming the space between sea
    And sky
    Mammoth
    undeniable, like
    Heat-seeking missiles
    Transcending the deep
    And drawing up fish.
