Lovey-dovey

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. A bit of nature in the city Donna -Tried to see it through their eyes as well as the voyeur’s

    1. Had no idea this would turn out like it has -but light hearted was the only way 😀

    1. and thank you Hannah for the prompt which perfectly matched what I had started to compose

    1. & despite the apparent libertine tendencies a mated pair stick together for the duration!

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

  2. 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.

    1. Call them rock doves & we feel differently but there is no other name for the mess of the human masses

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

    1. thank you for that comment ❤ was little worried it was too trite rather than just light hearted!
