Trifextra-Pigeon Poetry

This weekend's Trifextra challenge uses a photo prompt.  There are three photos for us to choose from, and I have chosen this one to inspire my 33 words:

Sometimes I perch
And contemplate:
     A step forward-
          A rush of wind upon my face-
               And then-
Nothing.

Do not worry though,
Those moments are fleeting,
I know 
my wings
Prevent my fall.

This weekend I am linking early enough to encourage you to join in the fun too!

  1. " I know
    my wings
    Prevent my fall."

    Which is why birds are infinitely luckier than I. I look down in terror because I know my human body has no means of preventing a fall.

  2. We all have things that prevent our fall, maybe not just wings. However, to have the freedom to safely step off into nothingness and fly, just once, would be pretty cool!

  3. Captures nicely what we can only imagine - how it feels to fly.

  7. I think we all feel hesitation, but have to trust our instincts at some point (wings would help, though!)

  11. This is very thought-provoking. What do we each have that prevents our fall? Nice job.

    1. My parachute is riddled with holes. Probably explains a lot.

      Nicely done, Rachael.
