A Mourning Dove

Two Mourning Doves greeted me at the office yesterday.  These birds fascinate me.  Their beautiful coloring of pink, gray and taupe brown and their soft cooing sound that I find soothing.

Mourning Dove

I whispered a quiet “hello” to them.  I don’t usually see them on the sidewalk.  They like to sit on the telephone wire behind my home.

I didn’t think much about them until later in the evening when I needed a bird subject for my blog.  I then remembered their visit.  How interesting they would stop by when I was mourning the recent death of my father-in-law whom I dearly loved.

So I created my drawing today in memory of Bruce and wrote this Haiku:

Mourning Dove cooing                                                                                               A song of sadness for me                                                                                                      I miss your kind heart.

Happy  First Day of Spring!
