The song and the feather of the Peacock

in #life4 years ago (edited)


Long ago, in paradise there was a kingdom of birds, birds lived happily and in harmony, in this fief only lived the most prestigious birds, was the nightingale, the turkey of the mountain, the Cardinal, the Peacock and the messenger Of the way, these birds were selected for their beauty, their songs and skills, all birds lived happily under the reign of the pheasant.

Each bird fulfilled a role in paradise, the messenger of the road had the mission to take care of the ways of entrance to paradise, the Mountain turkey had to warn if there were dwellers in the grounds, the Peacock had the work of butler, the Cardinal Had the responsibility to awaken to the pheasant the supreme of the paradise and the nightingale had the mission to sing to all the inhabitants of the paradise, each bird had a task to fulfill, no one was superior or inferior to another, this was the key of the coexistence in harmony.

The hummingbird, one of the most precious birds in the world, asked himself daily why he was never summoned to the kingdom of birds? Its incomparable beauty said that it should be in the staff of these privileged.

One day the envious Hummingbird began to create a bad environment in the kingdom, defaming each bird, inventing and creating situations of conflict.

The peacetime was over, the internal fights began between the birds, they wanted to be one more important than the other, the supreme pheasant that sees everything, I convene a meeting to define who would lead the group of birds, a responsibility and a charge Very important for the bird that it assumed.

The birds engaged in a discussion about how the contest should be, and each of them highlighted their attributes, sufficient grounds to be deserving of leadership of the kingdom.

I am the deserving post, my mission is to entertain the whole kingdom with my beautiful melody! Said the nightingale, my vos is the sweetest among all birds, without my singing the kingdom would be lost, people would not work with the joy they do, this is a good reason why I should be the one to lead the kingdom of the birds.


If there is anyone deserving of the position is me! Said the turkey of the mountain, my mission is the most dangerous and important of the kingdom, I take care of the kingdom of intruders, only a brave of strong character can do this task, the post requires a person with character to govern the birds, not There is a more important reason to lead the kingdom.


They realize why I should rule! The Cardinal said, as he walked showing his beautiful feathers, do not see my beauty, I have a relentless trajectory within the kingdom, my mission is to wake every morning to the supreme pheasant, without my work there would be no kingdom, the pheasant would not rise to reign Paradise, this would be a chaos and a great destruction.


The peacock listened very attentively to the manifestations of the birds, tried to see their qualities, their mission did not seem important, their plumage did not attract the attention of anyone, who could say to highlight his figure and deserve governability, I look around him And saw that the messenger of the road was missing, while they all argued, went to the house of Puhuy.


I come to give you the news of the meeting that is taking place in the kingdom, the birds discuss their position of deserving governability, I want to be sincere, I with these feathers and my profession can hardly win the contest and you are very small for To handle the other birds, as we are both lost, I want to propose the following, if you lent me your feathers I would win the contest, you would have many benefits in the kingdom and we would share the riches.

What do you think? Said the peacock, the bird Puhuy thought, seeing that the peacock is very right, said the bird to himself, I will not have to argue with anyone, step unnoticed and live a happy life full of benefits and riches, it's okay! I answer the bird Puhuy, you have benefits and riches said, right? Yes Benefits and riches! I answer the peacock.

The puhuy lent his plumage to the peacock, the turkey placed the feathers of the puhuy distributed well so that it seemed that they had many and cover well his body, to impress added a large tail of many colors.

The Peacock walked elegantly to the kingdom where the meeting was held, I wait patiently for his turn, when everyone calmed down, made his colossal entrance, walking with his body upright, unfolding all his feathers and his glittering tail, worthy of belonging to the royalty.


He addressed everyone with great height, as you will see, I am a bird full of surprise, I have the leadership incorporated, as you can see, this is the result of my leadership and driving, this plumage belonged to the messenger of the road, convinced that I must be The leader gave his pen to beautify the next sovereign, this is the test of my governability.

The supreme pheasant was impressed and very much in agreement with the election of the new leader of the kingdom of the birds, I make the decision and I appoint leader of the kingdom of the birds to the Peacock, I order to spread the news, I request to all the present the respect to the New authority.

The peacock took on their new obligations and forgot their commitments with the Puhuy the messenger of the road.
The puhuy being without feathers could not attend the kingdom of birds, it had been a long time since the last time they had seen the little bird, the rest of the birds paid a visit to the little bird in their home.

When they arrived at his house they found him dead of cold covered with some branches, very angry with the peacock, because they had not returned their feathers, worse is that he did not fulfill his promise, very angry with the turkey I tell the true story to the rest of birds.

The birds felt cheated, they decided to bring to the attention of the supreme pheasant the whole farce of the peacock.
We were in the puhuy house the feathers was not a gift, it was only a loan so that he could win the turkey. We found the bird died of cold, we demand a punishment for the peacock.

The peacock was punished by a liar, a liar and without a word, I condemn him not to have a song like all birds, every time he sings only a very unpleasant sound that causes laughter to the whole kingdom of birds.
