Chalk Pelican

CHALK PELICAN

Chalk pelican
on the sidewalk of the pier
about to take flight

 about to lift wings
of dusty white from cement
toward the dazzling sun

shining in heaven
over the dream of green earth
and wild, blue water—

let me sing to you
about rising back to life
and flying, soul free.
