The dove reminds us to check our intentions. Do we need to re-prioritize our lives? Often, we may be pushing too hard and long for something without letting the wind lift us to higher times. Other times, we may complain about our situation in life without doing anything to change it.
Usually any movement on my part or my dog’s scares the birds away, not the doves. They have an enviable calmness as they regard both of us with a curious glance. As larger birds, they can’t perch at the bird feeder and our ground feeders. The serene stare may be their way of saying, “A little food on the ground, please.” They are very resourceful in the fact they’ll search the ground for whatever the smaller bird may have dropped. They're not above eating bread, stale cereal, chips or popcorn either.
Doves raised legendary queen Semiramis connecting her to the goddesses.
Even in the first literary work, Epic of Gilgamesh, a dove is released to search for dry land.
Doves are especially beloved for the soft cooing sound they make, which is similar to purring. This gentle communication is so endearing that it is often used to describe human lovers cooing to one another. It’s the sound of being content in life.
