Turtle Dove

Not, a turtle dove…

not really all that fluffy, that; though, is their true nature

more of a polished stone

a ship in space or a rounded dome

not really a mystery yet … fantastic in glide and power,

my turtle dove.

………………….

Both, my friends is close –

the turtle & the dove like owl – above -evolutionary aggression,

drifting in great soothing arcs

soaring, almost questioning yet definitely

aloof above all the bustle, direction – not blown or blustered

my turtle dove

…………………..

Both friends of belief and

yet stricken to anonymity by cousins of war

their brothers the snake,

and the hawk; give them the edge they need to win

the strength to strike

the bloodline to stalk and find prey

my turtle dove
