On Wings of Doves

I adore doves--in my mind, they symbolize gentleness and peace. I love the sound of their melodic cooing. I enjoy their fearlessness when I sprinkle food for them at my feet. Their gleaming grey feathers seem so soft and if you look closely every color in the rainbow can be found.

I think there is a need for gentleness and kindness in our lives. Let there be peace.

The dove is gorgeous, the words convey truth and loyalty to these beautiful creations.
While arriving home from Hawaii, recently, my husband asked me what was my favorite part of the vacation?.. My repsonse was sponaneous and simplistic.
"feeding the birds each morning".
He smiled at me as if to say.. "yes, only you would say something like that"!
True there are many magical things that surround one while on vacation in Hawaii, but feeding the birds was the most interesting. The doves were a bit too smart for me. The other native birds trusted me as I sang to them they slowly waddled there way to me and took food from my hand.
It was marvelous.
Thank you for this marvelous post.
Thank you for all your input on my site and artwork. I told you how much I thought we are alike.
More will show in the future!
Happy Thanksgiving! Hugs, Darlene

What a glorius dove it looks like a messeger from above...very celestial Bea.
I love doves also, especially their cooing it is comforting somehow when I hear them. Your right they just seem gentle. Have a happy day and say a little prayer for our friend Jann she is having health problems.
