The view inside the window
The pigeon had two legs, but only one foot.
Unhampered by his hobble
he stood boldly on the Corner Bakery table,
peering through the glass to see me
looking at him looking at me.
Pigeons are not allowed on the Corner
While the waitress was still inside,
his pigeon buddies were making quick
meals of the
goodies left on the sidewalk.
But, not this one. He was more interested
in the view inside the window, turning his
to hear what he couldn't see.
I love the way living things tilt their heads
when figuring something new.
People do it too.
Balance, poise and curiosity can't be
Life is not just about walking, but flying
