The dove flies

After Ephesians 1:15-23

The dove flies,
a flash of startled gray
or white, splashing
into the air, a color
aimed at cleared air,
a spirit of wisdom,
a spirit of revelation,
that gray crowding out
black and white.
It’s a gift,
a gift of knowledge
handed out with purpose,
the splash of gray
to quench the thirst
of hearts. The hope
is in the dove’s calling.
