Florenceville Bridge

~

~

pigeons swim through air

fill gaps on the ridge line

~

perch on the shingled roof

scrutinize the traffic

the squeeze of half-tons

on the bridge

the kissing of mirrors

~

pigeons quit the ridge, glide

to the shingled shore

~

river winds shiver

hawkweed and sumac, displace

blankets of wild cucumber, billow

the skirts and Tilley

hats of tourists

  1. “the kissing of mirrors” What a great visual. Having driven through a number of covered bridges, I know just what you mean. I like your line of pigeons. I had to look up Tilley hats. Turns out I’ve seen them numerous times. I just didn’t know their name.

    • Hi Robin. Thanks for the detailed read and comments. Every time I read the poem in public there is a Tilley hat in the audience! Jane
