 Well done daisy!
I concentrated more on the dove in the light, no punctuation either; but I hardly ever punctuate!

in the chaos and turmoil
of what looks like real life
there resides in the hearts
of some
something more than
the false presumption
that that’s all there is
look to the light
beyond

the outward gloss

long forgotten on the stoop

Such a beautiful picture and I don't feel like I did it justice.  Here is my view … definitely needs work! It's late, proper punctuation is also missing.

You know what they say about birds of a feather
they rendezvous, they stick together
whether face value, or hiding in sight
they flock together, both day and night
to shield you from the world at hand
until you're ready to take your stand.
together the birds, they weave their wares
a security blanket to soften the stares
a shroud to encase the depth of your soul,
this mask will shelter and keep you whole
when the day arrives and your armor falls
these birds of a feather will fly away all
until such time as they need the mask
and the birds return to achieve their task.

Ahhhhhh yes, the mystery meat ... maybe that's what the stuff was they served in the school cafeteria all those years ago.  Mystery solved ... Fancy Feast

And ... now I want some chili !!!  Cute poem 🐱

So it's been awhile
Since I've cooked a meal
No modesty or denial
My Chilli is the real deal

A dash of cumin spice
And some cayenne too
A dash more should suffice
The aroma makes you drool

Add the kidney beans of red
And my favorite pinto beans
Fry the cow beef till its dead
Oh this heavenly tasty recipe

Stir and stir always mixing well
Chopped and diced fresh mushrooms
Oops dropped cat food in as well
Then again who will know or assume

Stirring adding all of the things
That makes my Chilli the best
And some stuff Fancy Feast brings
Which tastes quite good I must confess

Now that my delicious Chilli specialty
Is done and cooked nearly complete
Say go grab a spoon and join me
For some Chilli with a bit of mystery meat
