Life lessons followed by a ‘sign’.
my doves land before or after
when change comes.
I hear them from time to time
coming in the distance.
their ‘distinctive’ sound
the flutter of their wings
landing by poolside
perching on the wrought iron fence
drinking water from the bird bath
hopping up on the block wall
all within this tiny town of mine.
I walk out on my patio and talk to
them expressing my sincere ‘gratitude’.
their visit always makes me smile.
always, I am overjoyed with their presence.
and, sometime later
to an unknown latitude.
often in the past, they’ve stayed for days,
yet, I welcome them for keeps.
are a kind message…
‘everything’s alright, feel peace’.
if you love doves
pray for a ‘special’ dove visit.
pray for a ‘sign’
a face in the clouds, a letter in the mail
or an old friend who shows up in the store simply
because you’ve thought about them lately…
you make the call.
only you will know
