‘The 100′ series was initiated by my 100th Post in April 2012. As text and images are the essence of my blog I will post 100 pieces of textual art from historical and contemporary artists and from my own hand. To view the series to date click on ‘The 100’ in my Category Menu.

  1. Well it does and it doesn’t Philippa – pigeons are ubiquitous in that neighborhood and I understand the visual metaphor used – however – the aesthetic quality of the pigeons are somewhat incongruous to the gritty ambiance of the location – if you see what I mean…

  2. 🙂 is there a difference…oops 🙂

    (Poorly the words come out from our strange lips
    we write them down in so many mistakes
    the natives of the English language sigh
    and think oh please, spell check, for heaven’s sakes.)

  3. Glad you enjoyed this one Ese. Me old mum used to say that if a pigeon pooped on your head it was a symbol of good luck – sadly this doesn’t seem to be true for the marginalized masses who share this intersection with the pigeons…

  4. Love the poem Ina – you have one for every occasion – amazing poet you are. The pigeon is down there in the street with the humble sparrow. The dove has been elevated through literature and symbolism – Noah’s Ark – Peace – Love etc

  5. I don’t see
    that they are different:
    doves and pigeons;
    in the light of dawn
    they are all
    heaven sent to me.

    My guess is pigeons
    are on their way
    home to sleep in late,
    after painting the town red
    the night before,
    while doves need to
    take their white feathers
    to the cleaners
    early in the morning.
