Pelican dreaming redux

Only for a few
days, & then only
a few, the pelicans
ride the river. Most
of them & mostly
stay on the
floodplain lagoons,
move between them,
the flow of
water, food. Migrate
not every year
but when the great
rains come, not at
that time but
a year or so
later, fly faster
than the speed
of water, arrive
in the centre of
the island at the
same time. Shared
for some time. Then
the water dies. The
pelicans watch it. Go.
