cold mist
only the mourning doves
have voices

    loneliness,
    a cold misty morn
    the morning dove's coo

    sun hit mist
    vapour flies
    like doves

    Doves outside the window
    keep me company
    in this mourning air.

    Lovely poem, Ann. I live on the coast of Maine part of the year, where we have lots of cold mists and when we can get the seagulls and crows to quiet down, we hear the mourning doves but the competition is tough.

    abandoned dog
    that growlwes
    is dispaching its oneness.
