four doves

four doves

that morning
of rain
the islands
hard adrift
in cloud
four white doves
on the shell
by the waves
coming
lightly in
flew off
out above the
grey washing
silver slivered
tide in an arc
wide as the sea
i tried to guess
what four
white doves
could mean
for me
on a morning
of rain the
land the cloud
turning back
the clock to
being as
one
upon the
waters.
