     ... confident, colorful, dancer

The peacock has,
feathers plenty.
I tried to count them,
but there were just too many.

Each one was an eye,
staring at me.
Each one had meaning,
spoken clear and confidently.

The peafowl are great dancers,
they don't know the meaning of shy.
They have pride and confidence in mountains,
they dream higher than the cloud speckled sky.

The peacock's train,
is a colorful display.
The peahen heeds notice,
has he come here to play?

Yet even this performer,
as colorful as a full bodied rainbow.
Has a chink in its feather plated armor,
that could easily end the show.

This socialite domesticated diva,
For all its beauty and grace.
Has a voice as ugly as a muddy boot,
it's call is a forest of disgrace.

Yet even with a flaw,
this proud bird owns it all.
The peacock's plumage lights up the stage....

It sees the past, the future and it dances like royal empires... steeped in rich tradition.
Charles Darwin is the first in the audience to stand up and applaud.

About this Poem...

Animal: Peacock
Description/motivation: This poem is Chelsea... one of my dearest friends said she's both a turtle and a peacock... which is greedy, but finally I decided to write about a peacock while on a plane returning from my first ever Indian wedding.... a wedding in San Diego, and not India sadly, but it still counts! :)

This is one in a serious of poems I've written about various animals. The motivation, is that I love the idea of spirit animals, and I decided, one day, to ask many of my friend what animal they think best represents their personality. In some cases the poems are written with the person in mind... and sometimes it's purely about the animal. Read more about my process here. If you love this poem or want another written please e-mail me at :-)
This is an original poem by me!
