A Thousand White Pelicans


                                                                                                ... the night he passed

               ... a thousand white pelicans lined the shores of the river

                                                                                                                ... lifted their wings to say goodbye 

                               ... a few days later a package arrived


                                                                                     ... his white shirt wrapped in tissue paper


                                                                                                  


The photograph is mine.

    1. Jill, It's so good to hear from you. Actually, the neighbor knocked on my door and told me the pelicans had arrived. I ran down to the river with my camera and got several photos. They were all along the river. It was a beautiful sight. The poem came out of a dream I had... Thank you so much.

    2. I have 2.... the whiterlight one and also www.jillhodgson.blogspot.com where I post any artwork I've managed to do during the week. I respond well to a deadline so I tried giving myself a regular Sunday posting deadline this year. So far it's worked!
