Feeding Da Boirds {Gargleblaster: Yeah Write}

 

The scent of guileless fascination settles on the wind,

tantalizing them.

Chiseled beaks chirp and chatter, eager to peck away at the meaty pulp pulsing

inside my chest.

I’ve learned not to starve or shoo them,

they come home to nest anyway.

  3. I read through this twice. The imagery is stunning! It reminds me of the returning nests I have on my porch (morning doves) each year, with just a touch of neck hair prickles! Also, my daughter who is back home now after graduating from college. They always come back! Great work! XO

  4. Vivid imagery, Kir. I love the line: eager to peck away at the meaty pulp pulsing inside my chest. great job, dear!
