The air comes alive with the action of wings

A kit of pigeons cavorting in the sky

Performing rollers,

The acrobats of the heavens

Mosaics of color like flowers dancing in the wind

Descendants of the winged envoys of Noah

As much a blessing as the rainbow itself

Tiny replicas of angelic creatures

Presented as soothing balm for restless souls

That man might feel the pleasure of being God

They fly in unison; a synchronized squadron

Free spirits, climbing, soaring, turning and diving

Somersaulting backwards with incredible velocity

Rotating, head over tail, at speeds approaching a blur

Descending earthward, spinning down from the clouds

But in control, snapping out of a thirty foot drop

And quickly rejoining formation

Then, on signal, they alight

And trap in to food and safety

Leaving a silent canopy above

With no hint of what has gone before!
