[image prompt from Carpe Diem]

Woodford Square
ofttimes wayfarers will sit
as flocks of pigeons preen
near the old fountain
© gillena cox 2016

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

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

one feather -
the coo of pigeon
on the rooftop

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
