Pelicans aloft
above the chugging meandering boats
upright yet slow
old sturdy craft
beneath high tailed masts
circled by gulls
adrift in their wake
where were they travelling?
Were they in search of fish?
Or bait
or both
to then fro
up then back

The Clarence River sat
peaceful
serene
cut only briefly by those stilted craft
or a stick
or both

The township of Maclean
asleep on her banks
adrift in the wind
awakening once again
to stare at the pelicans
the seagulls and their fish
jumping
dancing
fighting at the tide
as she marches outward
into the deep
in search of tomorrow
or even just today
or both
