My submission is titled “Dreams of Greatness:”

Should she unfurl her majestic wings for the hunt?
Her prey was not furred and fast-moving
but fried and dropped by hasty pedestrians.
Eagle or not, riding thermals in NYC was always fantastic.

    1. Truly! Pigeons are second only to seagulls…having grown up on the Jersey shore, I have many a harrowing tale of the strong-willed gull in battle with the unknowing tourist…

  1. Sad but true about the fried food. I always find that disturbing when I see tourists tossing junk food to animals. But, who can resist those thermals – that’s the upside!

  2. Having grown up on the east coast of Canada, I can attest to the nastiness of seagulls and pigeons. I think it is a sad commentary on our society that they eat “human” left-behinds to the extent that they do. When we constantly plow their habitats under, they will find their own way to live, I suppose.
    I have only ever read two pieces of your writing but, I am out of line to use the term, “gritty realism” to describe your style? Regardless of term, you can just, flat out, write! I enjoy your words immensely.

    1. Thank you so much–I am honored by your comment for sure! Must be an east coast thing…I and my family are originally from southern New Jersey πŸ™‚

  3. Oh I liked this! “Eagle or not, riding thermals in NYC was always fantastic” – even pigeons can have the heart of warriors! Many blessings!
