Pigeons In The Sky

On a morning walk I chanced to see
That is both my wife and I,
From a pier that juts into the sea...
Pigeons in the sky.

We see many birds as we meander
So one may wonder...why
With pelicans and herons so much grander
Did we notice pigeons in the sky?

The pigeons were flying, to our elation
Silently, wings spread
In one harmonious formation
Just above our heads.

Left and right, up and down, they flew
In a wonderful display
And we were there to witness anew
Their beautiful ballet.

How do they do it? fly as one
Perhaps we’ll never know why
As they dance in the shadow of the sun
And waltz across the sky.

Then again, we don’t have to know
For our life to be enhanced
We simply have to enjoy the show
And the beauty of the dance.

For life needs more grace and symmetry
More moments that beautify
More moments of surprise and mystery
Like pigeons in the sky.
