A Mourning Dove

A Mourning dove
sent from above
hear them cooing
in the morning light
for ones that suffered
or did not make it
through the night
to soothe the loved ones
that were left behind
dressed in grey
to greet the day
a soothing sound
to give you peace
and help you get
a good nights sleep.

Mourning for Doves

Morning, Dove!

Mama Dove-

Oh boy!

Such Joy!

So close

So sure

So safe

So secure.

Too cute – two cute!

So soft

So sweet

So warm.

I greet

But stay away

To do no harm.

Yet

Despite this vow, her

Broken nest is empty now.

Feathers abound,

The crime scene, surround.

Once again

Tears fall

As I call,

“Mama Dove!”

Mourning dove.

On The Wings Of A Dove

by Loli
(Wellington, Florida)

Having a look around their new world

Having a look around their new world


I stood in the parlor
watching their arrival
as they sought a safe home
to ensure their hatchlings survival

They flew in and out
returning each time
a twig in their beaks
and cooing sublime

The patio is sheltered
No rain enters there
and the fan so high up
perfection for the pair

Their nest built and comfy
they settled in tight
and covered the eggs
all day and all night

And then it happened
The miracle occurred
The hatchlings came forth
Tiny wings on a bird

Nature is mystical
and brilliant with love
and brought us such joy
on the wings of a dove
