Dance of the Peacock: Reflections on self

The peacock is a representation of colour, dance and beauty. All of us, the author believes, have this within us. Colour represents the variety of experiences, talent and abilities we have within us. Beauty is the inner beauty of our core Self. Dance is the calling, the joy and the wildness that is present within all of us, sometimes tamed by experiences, society, culture, education etc. This is a collection of poems on the theme of finding oneself, finding the colour, dance and beauty of the peacock within. They are personal and yet as Jung says “The most personal is also universal.” This is presented with the hope that it will touch hearts and inspire others to find their own dance.
