Once We Were Doves Of Peace…

May 2, 2016

fether

A single, glistening feather
glides, slowly, sadly, to the ground…
its message to the world?
simple but deeply profound…

Was once a sole white dove
in freedom, in skies above
lonely in heart
a need to impart
some truth…
to the world below
that did not know
how the importance of life
without strife
without anger and pain
managed by the insane
could exist
through the mists
of time, of war
hatred, inbred, the poor
with pestilence
negligence
shock and awe
destruction an excuse, so pertuse
as not to recognise…as sane
life wanes…

and as I fly
I cry
for friendship, acceptance, to sing?
words, thoughts, of unity, without impunity
just a single need
for peace to succeed
ignorance is not bliss!

but with a kiss
companionship aligned
with two doves, two minds
thinking as one, of a kind
working together
to untether, the light
a release from darkness
until the next bullet hits…

and as that shell
impels
into the heart of reason
the season
of greed, anger and ire
re-ignites the funeral pyre
and loneliness returns
a dying dove burns
inside
leaving pride
for now or never
with just that solitary feather…..

    A sad, beautiful and uplifting piece. ‘Just a single need for peace to succeed’. Amen to that.
    Thanks Bogfather. You never fail to get the grey matter rolling.
