Spongy clouds

Air abuzz with chattering song.
Invisible, hidden in a sea of palm fronds
and under bushes.

One shoots off: wings flapping across my eyeline.
Small, dingy brown.

Now a handful flit and swoop.
Some doves.
All gaping beaks feeding on the wing.

Perched close
another simply ignores me.
A downy belly feather falls away.
Scooped up and gone.

Acrobatic loops
tail feathers flash by.
They soar: breathless, spiralling upwards –
lost in spongy clouds.
