stormy kind of wind –
a door slams in the gaze of
a pigeon cooing

Clearly the door has heard it all before. All creatures seem to have good and bad points and pigeons are a case in point for their gentle cooing is offset by the mess they make!

The wind slams the door so one might hear the gentle cooing..so much in so few words.

The wind has whistled here today, but alas no (wood) pigeons cooing.

There's a distant violence here, a memory perhaps or sense of something to come.
