Mostly photography, with the occasional philosophical contemplation

Identity Crisis


This female peacock grew up with chickens on the children’s farm. She really has to learn that she’s not one of them. Her male companion is more of a lonely wolf, but she stays with the pack of chickens. Sometimes i wonder if she even knows. And then, the question is whether it really matters 🙂
Anyway, it inspired me to write a few haiku’s on the matter

I'm no peacock

Haiku #1

In my ears softly
she said: I’m not a peacock
I’m just pretending

Haiku #2

A bird’s love story;
Being a peacock made her
Chicken out on me

Haiku #3

Like the ugly duck
This peacock has to learn that
She’s not a chicken

  1. If you would have grown-up with lets say Africans, you might be different today, too. I once reared a dove and I think it thought to be a human, as it walked right next to me instead of flying. Funny, isn’t it?
