I love this photograph of a pelican my daughter took while at the Perth zoo.
It almost looked like an eagle’s wing, at first. Massive and beautiful.
The wing, filled with black and white feathers joined together.
The day wasn’t bright nor shining.
More the kind that haunts in a dark looming way.
even in the darkness,
the evidence of hope
within those entwined and linked feathers
-heedless of their differences-
is there, for us to see.
