Photo Challenge: Transient

A hand flattened to shade my brow, questioning
the blurred late-afternoon apparition and not certain
I should trust my wind-burnt eyes. How to make sense 
of a tropical memory skimming across this land-locked 
farm --are those pelicans on my prairie pond?

They're rare visitors floating with mallards and mergansers
and Canada geese. The herons are suspicious of sea birds 
breezing onto our prairie grass ocean. Relax, they're just
like us, awkward and beautiful creatures migrating across
shared lives, resting awhile, then pushing forward.
