Blue Monday: Blue Sky Pelicans

The Pelican
by joyce a daniels

Head poised, she hovers

aged wings spread wide

before landing

in the protected mangrove

as dark waters lap beneath.

What a perfect blue sky! We live on Cape Cod, so there isn't enough sun and clear skies as I would like.

How lovely. I adore watching the brown pelicans too. They always seem so at ease.

Happy Blue Monday :-)

I really love pelicans. They will forever remind me of Louisiana. We see white ones in migration through Florida, and they always fascinate me because they will land on inland lakes and fish. Normally, I associate them with the ocean or the Gulf.

Thanks for sharing the birds and the lovely poem.

Happy Blue Monday...
