A peaceful sound

As I was sitting out on the screen porch shortly before sundown, taking in the sights and sounds of nature, in the distance I could hear the familiar distant cooing of the mourning dove wafting through the air.   With so much craziness going on out in the world, somehow the peaceful sound of this bird’s song was calming music to my ears.

“Music speaks what cannot be expressed, soothes the mind and gives it rest, heals the heart and makes it whole, flows from heaven to the soul.”  ~Unknown

    • The ones here seem very skittish. The minute I walk out the back door, they take off. But if I sit calmly, they will usually land near the feeders and stay until something disturbs them.

  1. It is always so peaceful to hear them cooing. We had a nest in my neighbor’s mesh flower basket on her back deck and she watched and photographed them tending to their baby.
