Gill McGrath© May 20 today
Up too late to catch the first pink of dawn over the way, I went into garden barefoot,with the camera- what a mistake – the grass was so cold, so wet, I nearly flew back to the kitchen. But the pigeon pair, sitting on one of the lines above under the blue were in the middle of a conversation clearly excited about the hazy golden sun getting ever brighter and still rising in the middle of the gap over the way.
There was a sudden flurry and the gent pigeon took off while the lady remained innocent, still seated, cooing gently – on the line. He landed on another wire nearer the sun and seemed to crawl dejected along it towards the pole looking for his best seat to watch it all.
A few others tried to join him but were quickly seen off!
And he has come back to her – having caught the gold – although I think he got a bit too close! – He obviously lost his head – and is quietly waiting to recover!
With any light mist burned away now gone – the fields to the side beyond the old Cherry tree – are suddenly quite yellow
Gill McGrath© April 21. beautiful day Early Bird
at seven the sun a peach caught in a pretty haze
dancing in and out the wires!
vanilla mists on the field in full cling caught casting dew
on every blade of grass making violets drip
with diamonds on the scented path
then blue skies and magnolia …at last
(and Jack in ermine strutting his stuff close by) – Gill McGrath©
