Pigeon in the glass, alas!

Hail to your anonymous poet, Ms. M., who does justice to the beauty of this remarkable photo.

That pigeon sure picked a pretty window perch. The glass is beautiful; bummer it's a bit busted though. Was this part of a bigger stained glass window?

Ms M said...

Exquisite words, Anon....

Thanks, Petrea, from me and my Anon poet (who happens to live in the same house with me :) )

Katie, This is part of a larger stained glass window. It's part of an old church building which had been neglected for a long time, but is now undergoing repair. Plans are for it to become a children's performing arts school.

Lucky you. I know how nice it is to live with a poet.

Ms M said...

We are both lucky :)
