Mourning Dove

Kurt Philip Behm

The music of passion…

it comes from within

Untouched by tomorrow,

it lives to begin


In corners of darkness,

through fits of despair

It waits like a songbird

—to sing out a prayer

    I wouldn't have minded another verse of this. Great flow with great meaning.

    A gem of a write.
    With an open heart
    I welcome the
    gentleness of the
    ā€˜Mourning Doveā€™.

    Thank you for sharing this precious ā€˜Dreamsleepā€™.

    Nice, I have one poem by the same title, but not as tame as yours!

  • L. B. Mek

    'that Aurora, chance
    of a refreshed perspective
    to glean a shard of opportunity
    a seemingly calamitous tidal wave,
    of ill-fate..'
    thanks for sharing, dear Poet
