I almost skipped this entry because of the title. I knew it would be a tearjerker!

I'm glad I read it because I have a soft spot for white doves. We had one named Snowflake that we rescued after she was shot in the head by a beebee gun. There is nothing like waking up in the morning to the beautiful coo of a dove. We had Snowflake for years before she died one day, cradled in the palms of my hands. Great, now I'm crying. Ugh.

Anyway, I loved this entry. Gorgeous imagery of the dove among the horses. Beautiful writing.

God bless, Teri
Your words brought this world to life for me. Very peaceful and very enjoyable.

This was a very enjoyable entry to read. Love the descriptions of the dove flying in and out of the horse's legs. Wonderful...

The description her is stunning--magically lyrical. And I loved the gem of truth at the end.

A well crafted piece, almost aethereal
