My neighbor’s pigeons –

Evening sun in their wings ~

Trained by the whistle.

Peter the Bluetit –

Freddy the Robin redbreast ~

I’m in their world now.

Continuity –

Clearly you’re a dinosaur ~

Hunting small mammals.

Hazy mountain-view –

Framed by fruit trees in full leaf ~

Tiny pears still safe.

Birds bursting hedges –

Noisy house sparrows, fighting ~

Calm Siskin, feeding.

Crows of Pristina

Oversee new cathedral ~

Excited chatter.

Evening birdsong –
Not those of my native land ~
Familiar now. 

Virginja contrails –
Half moon cut with blue and white ~
Dinosaurs fly through. 

Chattering finches –
In amongst the fallen leaves ~
Indistinguishable.

Our turret rotates –
Languidly, in evensong ~
Big gun, balls of steel.
