A Lone Dove Building an Olive Branch Wreath

Build Peace

A dove is considered a symbol of peace and love. An olive branch is considered a signal of pleading for peace. A wreath is a symbol of everlasting life and growth... of eternity. The center of the wreath is a peace sign. Beginning in the 1960s the upside-down peace sign became a symbol of Earth Centered unity and worldwide peace.

This began as a photo of a Christmas wreath with a Y shaped branch from the yard placed in the center. It evolved into my story told by nature...of a wreath built by a single bird. Through it's endless efforts with leaves and branches from an olive tree, the Dove has created it's wish for all humans. This wreath was not simple for the lone Dove...and creating peace will not be simple for humans. But the Dove never gave up. And neither should we...

I wish you all Peace somewhere in your lives. Thank you for viewing.
