Mourning dove, Yuma Pioneer Cemetery, Yuma, Arizona

First spring funeral—
after the priest’s final prayer,
a dove coos amen.

  1. Sometimes less is definitely more – and what better a farewell than the gentle coo of a bird..

  2. the plaintive call says it all…beautiful…

  3. Two goldfinches visited my mother’s headstone last time I was there. Her favorites.

  4. A perfect mourning dove.

  5. The mourning dove has such a beautiful soft call…so fitting for this moment.

  6. I love the image, and the words truly enhance it.

  7. so mournful and lovely!
