Releasing doves uplifts the eyes, signifies beginnings and endings,
joys and sorrows, true celebrations in flight.
In Christian Scripture doves are more numerous
than all other species. Luke 3:22 states:
"The heavens were opened and He saw the Spirit of God
descending like a dove and alighting on Him."
At the Nansemond Suffolk Cemetery,
a breeze ruffled the pines and white doves soared
to the sky over the burial site.
