Yearn to see Pigeon in Human

Pigeon-Tower at entrance of village Different breeds of pigeons feeding on grains Pigeons picking up grains Beaks, not distinguishing grains, by donors religion Grains, of different donors, lie scattered All looking same, no tags of donors religion on grains Pigeons, picking grains randomly, a routine since ages No dynasties, no politicians could teach them to be choosy In peace they live, bite, fly, return, bite, fly Harmony personified, humans made them symbol of Peace Seeing pigeons harmony, bit jealously seeped in Wondered, why humans can't be just pigeons ? Humans run free meals home, religion based Hunger is secondary, religion gets one free meal Hunger does not unite, religion uses them for riots Hunger for food is turned into hunger for blood Let human hunger learn from Pigeons Be concerned with grain, indifferent to donors religion Yearn to see a Pigeon in Human Wonder, can Human not replace Pigeon, as symbol of Peace? ------------------------- Hitendra Mehta Dec 2015
