Review Poem on The Dance of Peacock


 Dr. K. Rajamouly

         I am a splendid spectacle

The rarest of the rare for the viewers

The fairest of the fair of the creatures

       Really, it is my sole miracle;

       I am the dance of the peacock

With the unfurl of plumage in all angles

With the luster of images in all spangles

     Truly, a cud of joys in the stock;

     I am for the stupendous display

With the gorgeous glitters in the azure

With the felicitous postures in the sure

     A blue paradise seen in the gay;

      For the thirsty, I am the oasis

For the hungry, a fruit for full satiation

For the avidity, substance in all fruition

       In fact, I am indefinable bliss;

       My dance is seen not to cease

Like time to flow in the agile traverse

Like light to glow in the dark corners

       My utmost aim ever to please;

       I love rhythms in multitude,

An anthology subsuming imagination

In variety to mark beauty in reflection

     A feast of senses in magnitude;

       I fly in the fancy-firmament

With the galaxy of infinite inklings

In the rainbow-hues on own wings

     For sure, life-enlightenment;

       I am a poem-blossom garden

With theme-perfume, melody-honey

With ripe-recipe of beauty-harmony

     Musing-spring all to gladden;

    A poem on the anthology itself – a refreshing review of sorts. Thank you.
