Oh how I long to be a dove 
   soaring in silence 
   high above the hell 
that chattering seagulls make.

Yet I am a pigeon 
     pecking noisily at crumbs,
   oblivious to the gulls who swoop, 
        without a sound,

    A beautiful reflection. Made me realise I am but a grain of sand in this wonderful world. I am but one moment of it’s time.

    I’ve this mood reflected in words. The grey tones in the photo reflect a world of dreams and desires.
