A haiku:

Winter in Miami

Biscayne Bay at noon;

Pelicans soar overhead.

Do I miss snow? No.

Which brings to mind a limerick from Ogden Nash:

What a wonderful bird is the pelican.

His bill can hold more than his belican.

He can keep in his beak

Enough food for a week

But I don’t know how in the helican.
