PELICANS RISING

it’s happening
the sea and air converging
the perfect mixture of clouds
light winds
sun
uplifting ether off the waves
pulling your heart in

tunnels of rising air
go play
with the pelicans
way up !
so high
barely visible

you are
with their odd bodies
entering the thermals
becoming the gentle air
morphing into soaring angels

they do this
not for migration
being year round residents
and
their fishing takes place
low down
near the waves

oh no,
my loves
its joy!
pure joy!

little piglets
butterflies
squirrels and beetles

we’re all bound together
in love bundles
ancient tribal memory bonds
pelicans knowing in their hearts

how joy and happiness
feel
