The Necklace…a poem

she wore a silver locket
filled with bread crumbs
around her neck
so she could feed the pigeons
or find her way home
but in her heart of hearts
she knew that the pigeons
would eat them
either way

    Love this poem. I need to find more pigeon street art!… Hmmm, I might have one. Well, I know I have a bird. 😀

  3. Lovely 🙂 and this ending popped into my head so i had to share it with you:

    and that was just as well
    for her heart would always lead her home
    and the location sometimes changes
