I'll sing you one, O
Green grow the rushes, O
What is your one, O?
One is one and all alone
And evermore shall be so




Within me is a treasure trove of sweet and lasting memories

I never fail to bring you to mind

liquid gold you flood my soul

with such tenderness of love and adulation

I breathe your name in silence before the elm tree

and see before me your dancing eyes in the rushing stream

fleeting moments we once enjoyed

as the sand trickled throught the vein

you are mine, and always will be my love

as I whisper your name to the four elements

what once was, can be again

as at the setting of the sun, the stars come out to play

and remind us of our indissoluble pact

when you and I sat on the ivy covered stone wall

as the sun and our smiles dappled our skin

you know I am the greatest love you have ever known

so pick that precious bluebell back off the ground

and hold it within your hand so gentle

just speak my name to the angels all around

and your love will travel straight to my heart

and I will come once more to your side

where I belong forever and a night

and joy will be resumed in all its splendour

for my love, what we have

 is sunkissed by heavenly doves

So delicate and gentle and yet intensely beautiful and ringing with a vulnerability and sincerity that are melting, Peter. You have used your motif of the turtle dove wonderfully and most appropriately here. TY Kate xx

(((( Peter, Angelic Precious earth man, Divine man with a heart GOLD , )))) this is about the most beautiful and spiritual piece I have read in a very long time from the spiritual heart within you.. The Dove for centuries has been the sign of Holy Spirit and peace. I was so honored to be named that by the two Cherokee elders…It is a very, gentle, sensitive bird, that is very, very fragile. Doesn’t like to be in cages, Peter.. It is the sign of the Heavens. I love the different kinds. I see them all the time. When I do, I feel so much love, Peter.Thank you dearest precious man.. You my precious one inspire me so deeply to keep bringing the light, interceding and bringing strong awareness of my humanitarian work to the earth's brothers and sisters. Your words HEAL this dove from the past.. You Peter deeply motivate me and inspire me to keep standing up for justice on this earth.. Your ability to see where the Divine is, to hear the beautiful ones speak, to sense what they are guiding you, to paint your muse, is stunning.. Your ability to passionately place those powerful and beautiful colorful spiritual imagery together leaves me speechless, dearest angel.. I am in awe, dearest..I am so speechless, my wondrous and heart of gold friend.. I know the angels gave you this masterpiece , like a Michelangelo angelic vision upon millions of ceilings you paint words that are so powerfully romantic, spiritual and so agape.. Your agape is rare, rare, rarest, Peter !!!!This world needs your light, your agape, your precious spirit, Peter..!!!!!! I know who you are and what your messenger guides wish for you to do upon earth.. You are the messenger for social justice.. And you are adored, so preciously adored from the Divine... Lately, I felt the powerful feelings of the beautiful Red Tail Hawk ..I also have felt Dove and Eagle and Butterfly.. All air elements…I feel my Native guides are telling me something about the people around me.. That medicine is ultra powerful, Peter.. I know messages are happening for a beautiful reason.. Anyway, I am getting my lap top fixed today. I promise I will go to that funny site you gave me. And thank you for gifting me with that...I treasure your agape heart, beautiful man... I send you my love, prayers and spirit of hope.. You are that beautiful brightly lit candle, Peter for this desperately needed world.. And thank you for creating more light on earth.. You are so needed, Peter..

((((All My Love Dove ))))
