End of Winter

A marvelous bird is the Pelican.

His beak can hold more than his belly can.

He can store in his beak

Enough food for a week

And I don't know how the hell 'e can.

My reprieve from the (relatively mild) Winter in the Northeast, led me to a special island off the coast of Florida.

I had almost forgotten how therapeutic and tranquil the atmosphere in Florida can be.
It had been several years since I had spent time there, and I immediately felt the mellowness and laid back feeling induced by the warm breezes and flowing palm trees.

Life seems to take a back seat.

I become more aware of the tide changes and the colors that form throughout the day.

The sun dazzles me and embraces.

The hues in the sky and sea - mesmerize.

I contemplate the Pelican.
And the poem I heard many years ago.
