Poem: A Dove Carrying Hope

Poem- A Dove Carrying Hope

A dove!

Flying out of an old! Old Ark!

Searching the lands filled

With water after great floods

Flying into an old! Old Ark!

A branch in it’s beak!

Telling us, the floods are over!

Telling us of new life!

A signal  of Hope!

Yes!

Hope for redemption.

Hope for better.

Hope for new.

Hope for restoration.

Hope for prosperity.

                               ~ Tikva ~

8 Then he sent out a dove to see if the water had receded from the surface of the ground.

9 But the dove could find nowhere to perch because there was water over all the surface of the earth; so it returned to Noah in the ark. He reached out his hand and took the dove and brought it back to himself in the ark.

10 He waited seven more days and again sent out the dove from the ark.

11 When the dove returned to him in the evening, there in its beak was a freshly plucked olive leaf! Then Noah knew that the water had receded from the earth.

Genesis 8:8-11
