APAD 15: Pelican Landing


Pelican Landing
Like a plane you glide
(really … it’s the plane that’s like you)
impossible sights – both
too big to stay airborne
broad wings stretch wide
apparently still
you bank steeply over the shallows
clear your swimway
check wind direction
speed
adjust your approach
lower landing gear
gentle onto the sea
