Inspired by a photograph by Lynn Beirretter, a Pine Island photographer.

The Pelican
 

 

Head poised, she hovers
 

aged wings spread wide
 

before landing
 

in the protected mangrove
 

as dark waters lap beneath.
 

 
 

Framed and hung in the Beirretter  Photography & Gallery in St. James City, Pine Island, April 2007

I really like this. Concise imagery and that last line works on so many different levels for the reader. The piece reminds me a lot of Marianne Moore stylistically. Very good work.
