Joy forever !!

Sometimes I wonder 
about my ever growing love
for peacocks...

Is it the grandeur of the blue
that it proudly boasts of
or the brilliant strokes of green
and purple that adorn its feathers...

Is it the shining neck 
or the playful shining hearts on its tail...
Is it the large striking eyes
gazing beyond their range
or the music of its heart
coming out through its crown...

Is it the way it dances 
to celebrate its gorgeousness
or the way
 it gracefully carries itself...

Oh I still wonder 
if it is the compassion it symbolizes
or the fact that despite all the flaws and imperfection 
each feather has...
collectively they create a beauty
 that is joy forever !!


  1. I don't wonder why you adore the Peacock ... he is beautifully adorned and you have captured the depth beneath all of the color with your Zentangle depiction of him. Beautifully done ...
