I Want to Go Home

 

Here come the Pelicans,
Eight in a row
Following their leader,
Steering with their heads.
I stand at attention and salute.
Such primitive birds!
It feels right to honor
Their military instincts.
I’ll miss them.
Pelicans in flight

Within a few days
We will be back in Vermont
Where the birds are less organized.
They don’t patrol the periphery
But it’s each for him or herself.
(Snowbirds explode like a volley
Of sooty snowballs into the woods
Where they magically catch and stay
Until the next gust blows them far away.)
Here things look like a terrarium.
In Vermont
The glass walls are ice.
They don’t protect anymore.
I feel stronger up there.
I want to go home.
