Deliverance Of The Dove - Poem by Frank James Ryan
Two doves in motion, exploring their options;
In tune to life from their spire.
Dictating wings expand with suggestion, in a tone of conviction;
Thrumming like strings form a symphony in presto. Pacificating symbols - two doves descend earthward for societies muse.
Their conciliatory measure offers hope and solace to humanities division.
Above .... flies a thrush, a spirited songbird; no recognized symbol;
Its taupe upper plumage and spray spotted breast,
Presents radical contrast to the image and persuasions of the dove. Two doves now connect with the flight of the thrush;
Appearance and origin, separate and different;
Yet somantics and custom are not a player,
As the trilogy shares common ground...habitation;
Exploring their options without bias nor barrier. Will we ever do the same? Two doves and a thrush delivering one message,
From their kingdom to ours, in a tone of inclusion;
In tune to the isolation below them... A potpourri of birds perched on a spire, bowing their heads;
Pondering our options with a brisance of puzzlement.
