    I think I get it, Melissa. Is it about us identifying with each other in this life? Understanding what it is like to be in another’s shoes so to speak? Interesting —

    (Glad to see that I’m not the only one whose mom comments on my blog!)
    I like the contrast between crows and doves, and the conversion of big, loud, bossy crows into sweet, shy doves.

      Thanks! The contrast I love, too. 🙂 And it is nice that our Moms read our blogs, don’t you think?

    Thanks for joining our Poetry Friday gathering this week. Lovely to see a visual poem in the mix– and what a poignant metaphor.
