by Andrei Dorian Gheorghe

You fully deserve to be
a sweet constellation, Columba,
frail herald to Noah --
the chosen one for saving
something from life in his ark,
during the big flood.

For me, you always are
the image of those unseen beings
helping the people
on Earth and in the sky.
You are my first angel,
Noah's Dove!
