The Doves

flying doves

When I see the doves,

I know there is some tenderness, left in this world,

in spite of the hawks,

and the crows making loud noises,

the doves are always gentle,

always determined to be,


Under the surface,

I think they are fighters,

fighting for peace,

and always faithful, watching,

their love, the strength of two.

I’m not sure a dove would ever speak to me,

but if he did,

I think he would say, keep loving,

keep the peace in your heart,

guard it and keep it safe.

And always,

always be faithful, be gentle,

in spite of, the hawks and the crows.


 love of doves

Blessings to everyone and PEACE!

“If you love nature, you will love people.”

  1. Indeed, the righteous will be among gardens and rivers,In a seat of honor near a Sovereign, Perfect in Ability.Surat Al-Qamar [54:54-55]

    Dear Brother, May Allah swt have Mercy on you and grant you Rahmaat ❤ 🙂

    1. Thank you Sister Semra for your beautiful comments! I am blessed. I don’t know Arabic or Turkish but I do know Salaam! Salaam and blessings to you.

  2. Oh yes Amen Amen. I saw two tonight on my walk and you know what they said??? Coo…doves Coo at each other. I noticed that one was on top of this house and the other was pecking at the sidewalk. When I walked up it looked at me cooed and flew off. I think maybe it was saying what you just said! I think you could add Dove whisperer to your list of animal talk! 😀

    1. Wow, thank you so much! This is a true blessing and I am humbled. I’m just thankful people read my work. I have received this award recently but it is a great honor so thank you!

  3. This piece of writing clearly depicts the true meaning of life. Yes, there are “obstacles” and there is “winter” in life, but life goes on and there is always a “spring” after winter.
    Somehow, it reminds me of these lines from Kite runner
    “When spring comes, it melts the snow one flake at a time”
    So, “small acts of kindness” hold a great importance. Thus in the end, softness and gentleness of doves always succeed to overcome the might of hawk or crow!
