Kiley Lee
On the Wire
The mourning dove / most abundant and widespread / carries on through journey after journey / sending and receiving calls Some hesitant / Some counterfeit / Some loud and strong Rain is a sign of hope / or even a nudge to move on / Sometimes it is a name / Sometimes it is something we all pray for / Why do birds have so many names? / Do you fly? / Do you love? / Do you survive?
