    wrote this several years ago. it doesn't have a title::dancing_flowers:

    a dove
    has decided to build her nest
    in the right hand corner of the ledge upon which rests
    the precariously balanced backside half
    of my PC Richards' summer sale air conditioner.

    days pass
to nights, inching back masking-taped plastic curtains to see
    [without being seen] her indigo gray head cocked protectively
    gazing up into my curious eye;
    an offering of knowing to the unknown.

    i hear her
    softly cooing as I bathe
    an idle body in milk and honey lavender waves
    created by the beating of one lonely heart
    married to one restless mind.

    dawn sounds
    motherly hope, gently nudging me from incoherent slumbers
    under purple sheets of unfulfilled dreams and blunders,
    singing of a soul about to be born
    just outside my soot-covered, bedroom window.
