The Flight Of The Pelican by Craig Piercy

As the wings of the beautiful pelican spread
As the pelican lifts his head
As the pelican takes flight, I remember his plight

For as he moves in a flowing motion, it makes me think of some strange notion

When the pelican flies, where does he go?
Where's his home?
Will he be remembered and forever known?

I am reminded that it's like watching a child grow
Strong and steady, with a fight of plenty
Flowing through life with some minor tuberlance
Watching out, for any disturbance

The flight of the pelican
So inspiring, so freeing, so amazingly revealing
That's the beauty of the pelican in flight!

One of my favorite things I like to do in Rocky Point, which is near Tucson, is sit on the beach and watch the pelicans fly by. Beautiful birds.

We don't have Pelicans in NJ. However, when we visit my parents in Florida I'll get to see them. I can't wait!
