Sky Watch – Pigeons O’er the Mission

20 Nov

Sky Watch at Mission San Juan Bautista

Pigeons roost.
Startled, they fly in great circles
and settle again on the old tile roof.
Do they know why the bells toll?
Do they feel the prayers of those within rise up past them?
Do they guide them up to Heaven?
Or do they watch them pass and shake their heads, wondering at the ways of people.
