doves in the morning

doves in the morning

two mourning doves spend a leisurely morning cooing
and watching the rest of their world from among early
spring branches. in each other’s presence, there rests
a tranquility, a steadfastness that seems to guarantee
we are not alone. in ancient folklore, they were considered
companions of the gods and symbols of peace.
