Dawn of the Pigeons

Increasing Pigeons…

Yesterday I counted eleven.

Now I’m counting twice of ten.

 

Hungry Pigeons…

Flocking on a single bread lump;

No one willing to taste the crumbs.

 

Funny Pigeons…

Dislike for each other, they claim;

But their colors are one and the same.

 

Crafty Pigeons…

Flapping their wings in different styles;

Enticing people as they beguile.

 

Ambitious Pigeons…

Racing north with the dream to betroth

That high chair through a Bible oath.

 

Pigeons,..

So many pigeons…

But since when was the vast sky

Just above an old mansion?

And since when was raising a flag

Vested on the wings of one?

Jan, this needs to be put to music! (That is, if it hasn't already been.) Those last 2 lines are begging to be sung, preferably twice. :D I've never been much good at music, but I can almost hear it. Thought provoking and beautiful, and I wish I couldn't relate, but I can.

I really like this concept. Pigeons are totally grotty! I like the way you've touched on their grey wings - kind of like a grey suit? That's what you had in my mind anyway. The hard hitting first line in the verse and structure of the rhyme really works for me too. Thank you for sharing.

WISH I COULD DREAM FOREVER


Selene, enchantress of the night,
Chain me with light
To this wonder –
My dream’s zephyr.

Let me drift to a paradise
Where no one lies,
And no disdain
Runs through my veins.

Whisper me Endymion’s curse –
Zeus’ spell verse,
So dire sunbeams
Won’t fail my dreams.
