Morning Dove (mourning
) Caroline Gerardo copyright 2012
“What do you want for your birthday?”
“For him to return the heater in my nest.”
“Start over after loss of eggs to the crows?”
“Yes to waken in the morning to
his call oo-wahh-hoo oho oho.”
“Sounds like an owl.”
She is us, before sunrise with me.
Say to be his only one.
A message of spirit growth
outside my window before the alarm clock.
