Pigeon Pair

Is it true that birds mate for life
one mate, one life…
pigeons have always fascinated me
their antics captivated me
such variations in colour
but they often seem to choose
a mirror image of themselves
with a one-time exception that i saw
one black and one white (part fantail)
always together ~ no interest in another
black so attentive, captivated
intrigued, mesmerised, hypnotised
grooming her endlessly
they were seen each day for weeks
constant companions
and then they were gone
unseen for more than a year
I wonder where…
