Descended like a Dove

Touched by the Holy Spirit
descending like a dove,
before the voice of God spoke
identifying him for all
All who would listen;
but first he was touched
a mantle added to his walk
the beginning of his journey
a yoke added; but the yoke
was as a dove, lightly perched
walking with him on his shoulder
Guiding and protecting him
before the intoning of the prophecy
the ministry to come after the testing
but now the wondrous sight
the moment of revelation
confirmation of the fulfillment
of the prophecy of old
when the spirit alighted,
down through the heavens
descended like a dove
onto our Savior
