Peacocks - Poem by chayamsu v r

peacocks i painted
in my childhood,
neither elegant nor lovely,
stroll lively
in my yards and orchards.
in my lofty years
saw a sales-boy
on the side-way
trading in peacock oil
scraped and stuffed peacocks
stood in rows
with sublime elegance.
they remembered
charcoal lines
on the ancient walls;
the feather-kids,
born in books
and flown to the hillocks

now my children draw,
in indiscriminate hues,
the peacocks on the roadside,
with the indiscoverable woods
in their mortal eyes.
