Dove in the Morning

Dove in the Morning

A sign was sent to me,

just after sunrise.

A dove landed

on our back porch railing.

He was still, but looked around

surveying the landscape,

backdrop of green,

leaves of the oak tree.

He turned his head,

this way and that.

He stopped and looked at me,

staring straight at me he said,

“Why do you worry so much?

the hawks in your life,

are not real, they are shadows.”

He paused then said,

“Do not be afraid.”

I thanked him, grateful,

enveloped by relief.

He flew off

into another shade of green.
