He in perpetual motion
She alarmed by ardour feigns indignation
turns her back on the seasonal itch
allegretto tail flick switch

He in a mud puddle cools his heels
She with some puzzlement conceals
an instinct bubbling to the brink
seeks displacement in a drink

He treads water anxiously
She concedes on her bended knee
drum roll for a precipitous pairing
pigeon passion is unerring

Mating with IGWRT’s prompt:Transforming with Nature’s Wonders with this quick-fire rhymer and popping into Poetry Pantry too.

  1. Love the he/she perspective and the way the title ties in to the pigeon topic….very clever 🙂


  2. Enjoyed contemplating the idea of pigeon passion, as I had not given the subject much thought before. Smiles.


  3. If they weren’t so passionate perhaps we’d a have few less to foul our environment. They could say the same about us too I expect! In fact we are indeed much the same.


  4. allegretto tail flick switch – i could dance in that line forever – we overlook pigeons but they know the world don’t they!


Feedback is food for thought....
