Poem: Pelican in Vogue


How would you like me to pose Mister Cameraman,

atop the wooden railing, floating in the sea?

Do you want me to stand on one leg, how about two?

Try this side, it’s really my best, see how the light

plays off my giant bill.

I can turn in profile if you prefer, or throw

me a little treat and see my emotions explode,

tickle my my brown and gray plumage and I’ll flap

my wings in fervor,

fill my throat pouch with fish and I’ll strike a pose

that will last forever.


Freelance writer, poet, yogi and photographer from Santa Barbara, California. I write and take pictures about a variety of topics, from my early childhood in Philadelphia, to my years as a family therapist, and finally to my soul-searching years in California. The things that move me may have a humorous or serious content or both. Either way, I hope my poetry, pictures and stories resonate with you.
