Joyful Mourning Dove

The world thinks it very odd, this unremarkable grey bird…

Coo joy in sorrow from God? Joy in a minor key un-heard!

Ridiculous, a religious façade! Happiness is first, not third…

Joy in sorrow a sanity fraud! Joy can’t be sung by sad-bird!

Sad joy of Dove is guffawed! A joke something so absurd!


Joy’s sad song deep sorrow, cooing of the Mourning Dove…

Grief a vexation to borrow; in minor key to coo God’s Love!

Hopes peace for tomorrow, for all who dare to look Above!

Happiness fleeting sparrow, fly away when push-to-shove…

Spirit’s Joy Eternal-Morrow! Faith is joy of Mourning Dove!

  1. Ok…let me see if I get this one right. God’s joy comes in the midst of sorrow. The world thinks it odd and ludicrous that a person claiming to be a child of God would look to Him, by faith, and grab hold of that joy. Is that right?

  2. Your poems show us we can bring Joy out of sorrow with God’s guidance. I have been praying for God’s guidance and reminding myself slow down or you are going to be in trouble. God will show me the way.
