Pigeons have made their home at my factory building. While designing and constructing the building I had thought as much that the place would tomorrow be the home for birds. That has been dreams come true.
I do enjoy seeing them during mornings and evenings. Flying and coming back feeding their little ones and at nights sitting in some places in a meditative posture.
This morning one of the Pigeon had entered the administrative block from where it could not go out as the glass windows were closed, it was attempting to go out hitting the glass panel. As I was entering office I could hear the hitting sound. Seconds past it was in the hands of my worker. My manager told me these guys take it home and eat whenever they get them. I became wild and grabbed the bird from his hand, opened the window and released the Pigeon.
The way it went flying into the air, I could see the happiness in its fly which made me happy too. The episode might have taken about 25 seconds only, but the sight of the bird flying inspired me to write these lines which I would want to share with you all.
SECONDS OF HAPPINESS
Like a Woodpecker hitting at the Glass
Calling for my attention as I Pass
Grabbing it from that wicked Hand
Clasped it tight in my Hand
Eyes dwindling in Fear
Accelerated heart beats I couldn’t Bear
Holding it in Rescue
Throwing in air it Flew
Sigh of relief; patting its wings like never Before
Like a Roller Coaster ride, I never had Before
Except planet earth a place where can it Find
I Ponder, why can’t we be Kind
The Pigeon enjoyed seconds of Happiness
I too enjoyed seconds of Happiness
