pelicans

pelicans 2

I saw a flight
of pelicans
rise

above my head
great boats
of the sky

the first
had one eye
on the path
they must take

the last
was watching the ground
one eye
on me

I was the flight
of pelicans
rising

over the water
above the trees

one eye
watched
the path we must fly

one eye
watched the ground

watched
over me
