Pigeon



He was a messenger of love, carrying letters from one place to another. Lovestruck prince and princesses who were separated by distance, scribbled their thoughts in perfumed pages, attaching them to the Pigeon. He was quicker than the public postal system. The Pigeon loved his job too. Every time he saw the smile on the recipients' faces, he felt satisfied.

"It's our anniversary. Will you return early tonight?" the Pigeon's wife requested.

"I don't know. I have to do my job too," he answered brusquely.

He went on distributing love everywhere. His wife kept on waiting for her share.

  14. Oh Amrit,this is so awesome. A wonderful allegory. Indeed as often happens we are so busy working or doing other things that we forget to leave love at home for those who need it most. Great!
