Birds are often depicted as harbingers but also they can be welcomed as spiritual messengers....


When two pigeons land

in my back yard

they snap flash,

decades faded,

my mother's face

hand-over- mouth

to contain her laughter

that otherwise might fly

straight at my father

two feet away

toppling his camera

erasing the shot.

They always said

they'd come back

as pigeons.
