A Prelude To Spring In My Balcony

 Spring arrived this year with a bounty of new life in my balcony. Though it was a long wait yet a visual treat when a pair of squabs came out of the eggs. It was a sheer delight to see them quivering and cooing. But, a repair work in the kitchen and frequent intrusion of laborers in the balcony on the pretext of getting their tools might have given a fear or insecurity to mother pigeon and to my dismay, one morning, I found them missing. Perhaps, transported by their mother to a much safer haven.
