A River of Stones: January 11

Two plump pigeons sit
on the parapet of a red brick building
surveying the traffic
like two opera going ladies
sitting in the best box seats.

For A River of Stones - a project to post one "small stone", a moment of careful observation, each day during January.

I am having a very busy week at work, so this will also have to serve as my post for Tuesday Poem. Is it a poem? Maybe, maybe not.

Over at the main Tuesday Poem site, Mary McCallum has written about Harvey McQueen who died on Christmas Day, and posted his poem Reading Janet Frame. It's worth a visit, for Harvey's gentle thoughtful poem, and for the other Tuesday poets, listed in the side bar there.

I am loving your 'stones'. Succinct little gems.
