THE DOVES


 Image borrowed from here:


When the doves coo their mournful mating calls in the early spring as black, beautiful, powerful storm clouds roll in, I remember my Gramma calling the doves rain birds, and a feeling of peace surrounds me when I close my eyes and listen with my heart.


The heavy impending storm makes their sounds three-dimensional.

Very nice. The sound of doves is such a restful sound. And I love how they squeak when they fly.
