FEATURED POEM: Two Doves: And They Were Both Males

Two doves flew by,
Giggling, dripping white. They settled on the near fence.
Kissing and flying free.

Two doves flew by
Laughing, possibly at me,
Flirting in the abundant wind,
They didn’t care I’ll see,
But I did, they were both male.

Two doves flew by
This time black,
I stretch my hands to hold them,
They were repelled by my lonely spirit.

Those doves came back.
I could see they loved it. They both had wings and could not be imprisoned.
I4years was nothing.
Closing my window
I wailed like a baby.
