Peacock or Kite (Colorful / Powerful)

Updated on February 25, 2016


Peacock or the kite, which one should i like?
Colorful or the powerful,? Let me analyze.!

I chose to be content with whatever, i can imbibe.
Everyone in nature, is for something or otherwise.

I'm unique, I realize.
What a lovely peacock and the kite.!!!

      Nellieanna, I am so greatful to you for being so elaborate and descriptive in analysing the picture and the thought process behind which I got inspired to write my very first poem. God really is in detail. I am inspired by you and the way you have given your time in writing an extremely beautiful comment. God bless...

      First, the picture is intriguing. How often would someone notice the amazing contrast between the two objects captured in a brief moment? How long would that kite have remained in view? One has to be quite aware and sensitive to do so, beyond the ordinary awareness. There is also the matter of distance and depth perception involved. While each item is man-made, one of them is crafted and intended to be static and stationary, while the other has no purpose except to be taken by the wind into constant motion, however briefly and dependent on variables. But while it is in motion, it’s virtually alive. When it stops, it’s virtually dead. It reminds me of why ‘prefect is not so appealing, because it needs nothing more, so it is also static and dead, for all lively purposes. What is alive and moving is always dependent and in need of something to sustain it, is destined to stop and die, though the overall system keeps producing new life.

      Then the words. You contemplate the two items in the view and challenge yourself to select the better of them to be. But of course you think about it and must conclude that each has its own value, beauty and role in the big picture in that instant and in that place.

      One needs not ‘be’ anyone or anything but who and what one is, just as the peacock and the kite are great just as each of them is. A good summation of something so elementary and profound, yet too often, so difficult for people to realize!

      Yes sir. Thanks.

      The poem is about knowing ones own strength and not compare with the affluent personality and be a copy cat.

      Thanks limpet. You liked the poem?

      Through the poem, I wanted to say that most of us do not realize our own strengths and try to copy others.

      Actually i'm inclined to favour the kite. Just to the north of the greater London area lies an area of outstanding beauty where there happens to be an abundance of these graceful birds. That is not to say that i don't like peacocks, on the contrary peacocks (and pea hens) are such an exotic species and mysterious too.
