Sri Chinmoy wrote a fascinating little compendium on the spiritual meaning of animals which was published by Agni Press in 1973. Today’s poem features the dove; the picture shows Sri Chinmoy wigth a dove.
You sing the song of peace.
The aspiring human beings
Are all on their knees
To have your eternal treasure.
Without you, life is nothing but
A destructive pressure.
With you, life is fulfilled satisfaction
In measureless measure.
Sri Chinmoy, Animal Kingdom, Agni Press, 1973
