Peacock is a cycle of 12 poems about the dances of love. The author was inspired to write this poetry by a wish to once again possess two eye shadows of iridescent hues of blue-green and gold. She’d thrown them away, deeming them garish. And then she wanted them back. Each poem invites readers to embolden their colours, to enrich their dances of love, and to live life as if it has just begun.
