Untitled (a peacock dream)

Their voices sounded throughout meadows green,
a majestic swirl, of pearly white and emerald teal.
I witness rays of shimmering moon pouring upon,
illuminating their glorious plume. Suddenly time,
comes to a complete standstill, I open my eyes, to
see rise of tangerine dawn.Β
