Peacock photo from my visit to The Wild Fowl Trust, Point a Pierre, Trinidad in March 2012

CRUNCH COLOUR AND LACE
In a crunch of dried leaves he stood there looking at us
A group of curious passersby wearing the click
On our cell phones

I wonder if his plumes are wide open today displaying
The arrogance of a male Narcissus carrying
His colours in radiance

Maybe he will give his white queen some of his plumage
To paints her sons dazzling jewels in the sunny roost, maybe
White lace if daughters
