Thanksgiving Dove 1

There was an early morning greeting 

from a soft, sweet turtle dove

resting on my deckside railing

 sending messages of peace and love.

Yes, the day seems cold and dreary

but take a look below.

A Dove and a Deer

Is that a deer quietly moving

through the night’s collected snow?

Happy Thanksgiving from me to you

and add a message from the dove.

Take time to look with a dove’s eye view

for a world of peace and love.

A Multinational Gathering of Aliens

Driving home yesterday I was involuntarily stopped short in order to rub my eyes.

There was a gathering of grazing critters.

This in itself is not unusual when you live in the country.

I am still undecided.  How about you?

Note:  A friend of mine has a friend-vet, who has identified the alien creatures as donkeys!  Take a look at some of these stories.

Shenandoah Sunrise 011

It’s a horse of course, busy dining,

but still able to give me that wandering suspicious eye.  

I don’t know her name but she has a twin companion named Pam.

I know this isn’t Pam because she is sporting a muzzle like contraption

to keep her from overeating, which can result in what

horse people call “foundering.”  And that is not a good thing.

The twins live 

down yonder

from my Virginia country “estate!”
