I Heard the Cry of Mourning Dove

I was working on a "Flash Friday 55" for G-Man's meme. Unfortunately, I was unable to trim this any further to suit with his rules. So, instead, I present to you my "63 Words on Thursday"

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I heard the cry of Mourning Dove
rousing me from dreams
chanting hymns from high above
singing just for me


I heard the cry of Mourning Dove
sorrowful the song
her dulcet tones were trilling of
loss, of pain, of wrongs

I heard the cry of Mourning Dove
weeping in the tree
tears of healing, hope, and love
from branches fell on me

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Polly, I don't know what to say, other than this is hauntingly beautiful.
