"The Return of the Dove to the Ark"

Painting "The return of the Dove to the Ark." by Sir John Everett Millais, 1851

Can I be as the dove? Yes!
Where there seems nothing to hold on to,
I can return to a spiritual sanctuary.
When I find a small symbol of hope,
I will treasure it and revisit my sacred store.
When I am free of limitations,
Then I will see a "bow of promise on the cloud"
And know His perfect provision of peace.

by Sally Lessiter, from her poem "The Return of the Dove to the Ark"
