White Peacock

A mystery
A rarity
A beauty here
Beyond the sea

So delicate
And yet so strong
So elegant
A haunting song

And who believes
Such creatures breathe
In brightened light
In feathers wreathed?

Found not in dark
Nor cold daylight
This mythic bird
The peacock white

Such alchemy
Do you suppose
The whiteness here’s
Not just the rose?

The whiteness here’s
Not just the rose?

  2. White peacocks are gorgeous. I saw one in Floruda and they look like ivory statues until they move.

  3. Brenda says:

    I also feel privileged to see a white peacock, and it was other-worldly and startling.

  4. Brian Hughes says:

    I used to live in an attic flat many years ago, and one morning was woken up by two peacocks bouncing up and down on the roof. You only realise how big they actually are when you see the ceiling start to bulge.

  5. I have seen one in real life they are supernaturally beautiful

  6. OMG this is just stunning Sis!
