a dove in the sunlight

I looked up and saw a dove in the sunlight, high on a wire overhead. The sky was eternal, cloudless, a deep azure blue.

Calmly, we regarded one another, the dove and I; the dove did not fly, and I did not move. Instead, I released my restless thoughts and relaxed into the moment.

I understood how peace waits for us. To find it, sometimes, all we must do is adjust our point of view, change perspective, look up from this life.
