Mourning doves hesitate atop
and agitate amongst
willows, somnolence their destiny.
Puffing up within the splayed
breath of sun, they accept
my warm railing
as it coddles feathery bottoms.

My wife, Esther and I really enjoy writing. It is an excellent salve, in addition to prayers, a great wife and family during my continuing recovery from a stroke/aneurysm. You can contact us at: firstname.lastname@example.org re comments on our work. We live in Truro, Nova Scotia, Canada. Pray for others.
