A Cry for Help
pelican, animals, life, loss, sad,
My name is Peter the Pelican
I'm nothing special at all
I fly around as I'm supposed to
But this day I was close to a fall
O’er the sea.

With halos of pink, orange, gold.
As the orb climbs higher in the sky,
Bright light casts its...

Hurricane’s torrent forced the river to rise high
Bursting dam left catfish laying on rocks now dry
Writhing and gasping for breath in arid air warm
