A Pigeon’s Decision

Written for:  Poetic Bloomings2 - Prompt #366
Many Happy Returns

"The day after Christmas has always been the day folks rush back to return gifts. Things get to return to “normal.” Some people return home from visiting relatives for the holidays. So it is fitting we write a ”return” poem."

With a message tied to his leg,
the pigeon was off, but instead
of delivering note
which by now was rote,
he flew the coop with a female named Peg.

I am a freelance poet, born and bred in Brooklyn, New York. I live with my husband, John, and two charming rescue dogs–Marion Miller and Murphy. We spent eight lovely years in Portland, OR, but are now back in New York. My goal is to create and share poetry with others who write, or simply enjoy reading poetry. I hope to touch a nerve in you, and feel your sparks as well.
