Statues

Side by side on a branch
two pigeons sit like statues.
The wind blows, the branch sways
yet still they sit, defiant.

Just at the moment I am having difficulty leaving comments on Blogger or Blogspot blogs – sometimes it works, mostly it doesn’t! Thank you to all my blogging friends who continue to visit my blog. I am still enjoying my visits to yours but may not be able to leave any comments. Hopefully the problem will be sorted soon.

    Perhaps they were the glue holding that branch in place! I enjoy how natural things help each other. Nice catch!
    We’ve gotten our first winter snow about 6 inches here over night. It is peaceful – no birds noises or sightings yet.

    I can see this perfectly. I wonder if in their defiance of the elements, they were also able to keep each other warm.

    I love idea of birds unmoved by the wind when they chose not to be.

    There is much of that “hanging on until spring times comes” feeling right now. Sorry you are having trouble leaving comments- should leave you more time to write! 🙂
