The Cooing and Fluttering of Doves

The Cooing and Fluttering of Doves

.

So sweet and gentle they all look in their way

Wondering eyes hugs pile on you to stay

Smiles gone wild as faces find such wonder

Secret stares of a party with laughing sounds of thunder

.                       .

Sweet these feather dusted clouds of tender style

Victories’ and defeats both smelling sweet all the while

Thrusting to heaven their ribbons first and fifteenth place

Happily living with grace in some glorious place

.                       .

We, with our worry, envy, jealousy, anger

Hate, fear, with ego, and isolated danger

They, with their Peace, happiness, and laughter

Wonder, excitement, and loving like a master

.

Now I understand why we call them Special

Hovering overhead is a halo happy vessel

Earths additives and nutrients for the soul

Who helps who to learn, who helps who to grow

.

Who helps who to know?

These

.

Our gentle moments

Our need to love someone else

Our arms soaked in righteous understanding

Our kindness defining our faces in laughter

Our warm hearts swelling from love ever after

Who is the student, who is the master?

.

Once I felt sorry for these angels with grins,

How could I have ever been so very wrong?

These Special agents

Of love

.

The cooing and fluttering of doves

I wrote this after a ballgame I participated in called the buddy program for a special group of down syndrome kids. They are the true angels amoung us.

When I first read this I was slightly confused as to where doves came in... but after the background I totally get it. What a beautiful way to empathize and not sympathize, you know because truly, we cannot "feel sorry" for what we do not...

When I first read this I was slightly confused as to where doves came in... but after the background I totally get it. What a beautiful way to empathize and not sympathize, you know because truly, we cannot "feel sorry" for what we do not understand. Love it! Thanks Van

Beautiful! Sometimes works in this vein have a tendency to fall flat or get lost in sentimentality but you've avoided that trap very well.

As a mother of an autistic son, this piece really moved me. Thank you for writing it and being thoughtful yet thought provoking.

Ladies, I "AM" truly honored by your comments and for understanding the point I was hopefully conveying about the complete wonder and joy these angels bring to "Everyone that gets a chance to know them", down or autistic you just can't help but being touched by their light. I thank you and God bless you for helping me to shed our light on these sweet innocent's.

Nice Vango, I sensed where you wre going immediately. One peeve, I think you should not have posted your comment so quickly letting us know what inspired the piece until after receiving some feedback to see if people would "get it." The peeve is about the comment not the piece, which I think demonstrates how you're poetry is growing, as are you, along with your talent. Thanks for sharing.

I was impatienent on this piece because of it's nature, I wanted to share it. I waited a day and even though I am growing older, everyday I still find that impatient child in me betrays my better judgement. Of course your right, and I was a bad boy and should be spanked.
