Thanks, Devika and Gautami, for the comments and good wishes.

Glad it works for you, Marcel.

Monika, I was wondering who Mo was. Glad you saw the pigeons' point of view, which was an important part of my intention.

Looking for Milky Way ...
the full moon found -

This is a variation from one of my three-line-text in my "Northern - texts" - collection:

darkening at midnight
but not a hint
of Milky Way
