Ode to the Dove

looking outside my kitchen window
something moved in the shadow
as though taking a bow
in the afternoon glow

having only the phonecam
trying hard not to make any sound
adjusting to get into the frame
blooming orchids in the background 

took just one small click of the camera
for half a dozen sensitive creatures
to take off and disappear
leaving me with only pictures

taken through the window glass
of Zebra doves feeding in the grass

thanks Kenn.

i like it lots too.

similar to a blog, don't you think?

looking at things outside ourselves, from inside.
