Captured in a moment.
This bird visited me in my kitchen.
It just sat and looked at me.
But it could not stay.
I feared the dogs would soon pick up the scent and terrify it.
It did not know the danger.
It flew to the small window
Leaving in my hands a pile of feathers.
Are you okay bird?
Whisked out the door to safety.
Leaving part of you behind.
A home, should be like entering the heart of a dove.
