1969


[image prompt from Carpe Diem]

Woodford Square
ofttimes wayfarers will sit
watching
as flocks of pigeons preen
near the old fountain

Revisit
my opened window
strutting feet of a pigeon's
walk on the pavement
20121101

translucent day moon
smothered in cumulus...
a pigeon coos
20130716

one feather -
the coo of pigeon
on the rooftop
20160401


Blog hopping today at Carpe Diem Imagination with Paul Militaru #1 rest

the cooing of pigeons
no longer resonates through the street
peaceful end of day

Your first is so full of atmosphere. Like it very much. Very nice haiku after, each one, especially the strutting!
