Count the Pigeons on a City Rooftop

At first glance you think you are seeing architectural details, all along the roof ledge.  There were at least fifty of them.  Part of city life- the pigeon.  Today’s photo/post  evokes the poet Timons Esaias whose chapbook title is  The Influence of Pigeons on Architecture For a copy ($8.50) contact Tim via his website.

You may remember Timons Esaias was guest poet on the blog for his poem. By Their Sidewalks You Will Know Them (click here) posted about this time last year.

Birds in the City

Not in a tree this time
or flying above.
People have feelings about them.

Carson Street on the South Side. A beautiful blue sky.
