Ugly Legs Of Peacock - Poem by Aftab Alam

Once, I danced;
Under the cloudless canopy,
With a dream of yours,
What a joyous moment it was!
I danced and danced like a peacock,
Thought, you will come....
Ah! panorama of yours', blinded,
Spotting such a joy,
Clouds came and poured,
Cloths were wet but I was dry
I Opened my eyes,
You were not present!
Abandoned the dance,
And in grief, cried I.
O! Disappointment,
'You're the ugly legs of peacock'

    I have read somewhere that during his ecstatic dance when peacock looks at his feet, he cries. Maybe you have this myth in your mind but a beautiful symbolic poem has been created. In life ugliness and beauty, disappointment and hope go hand in hand. (Report) Reply
