On The Wings of A Dove

On The Wings of A Dove

A Poem by *~*Butterfly Kisses*~*

Inspired by a dove on the window sill of my apartment in NYC, building a nest.


If you could only listen to my heart

Singing its own tune

I often wonder what you would hear

As if it had a voice of its own.


Beating softly spoken secrets

Whenever you're on my mind.

The fluttering thoughts

Of what our love really became.


Gone, but never forgotten

As my pen scribbles to it's own beat

Reminiscing word that were never said

How much our love really meant.


I'd send my words to you, wherever you are

All on the wings of a dove,

To have one more moment to cherish

And be in your arms once more.

Inspired by a dove on the window sill of my apartment in NYC, building a nest. This just suddenly came out after it flew away. Hmm...

Anna Rose, you're on fire! I can barely keep up...I listened to your heart and It has a beautiful song. Sung like the coo of the dove. This is just lovely writing and tugs at the puppet strings of the heart...I can't pick favorite lines because I love them all.
Great job from a tender heart...

It's incredible how you turn words into music, you play superbly with their sounds, i can see many similar words (GONE, forGOttEN) and alliterations (beating Softly Spoken SecretS) and just to stress even more the "sound dimension" many verses are related to acoustic stimuli (LISTEN to my heart, SINGING its own tune, what you would HEAR, as if it had a VOICE of its own ... and that's just the first stanza !!) Very well done :)

This is so lovely. I love how you made this a tender, emotional write. I can feel your loss of when this person left and what they meant to you.. sending messages through the wings of a dove! Wonderful!

Your voice is ever so strong. It is beautiful, true, but there is something beyond beauty that gives this a extra spice and reason to be read.
