The Flight Of The Pelican

Poem By Craig Piercy

As the wings of the beautiful pelican spread
As the pelican lifts his head
As the pelican takes flight, I remember his plight

For as he moves in a flowing motion, it makes me think of some strange notion

When the pelican flies, where does he go?
Where's his home?
Will he be remembered and forever known?

I am reminded that it's like watching a child grow
Strong and steady, with a fight of plenty
Flowing through life with some minor tuberlance
Watching out, for any disturbance

The flight of the pelican
So inspiring, so freeing, so amazingly revealing
That's the beauty of the pelican in flight!

You Walked Away!

The day you walked away

People here, people there
People using their power everywhere

Humanity toward others

Goodbye Daddy

He closed his eyes and drifted away
I knew then all I could do was pray

Goodbye daddy goodbye

Taking A Stand

When things around you change you realize you must rearrange
Why do others find this strange?

A Lost Soul

When you wander around looking for that thing that's missing
It's your soul that's missing

That heartbeat, feeling of retreating
