Shining Feathers

peacock-560252_1920

The feathers of a peacock
shine in their uniqueness
like no other.
They fan and show brilliance.
Peacocks digest thorns
so their feathers cast wonder.
This makes me think of
the thorns I’ve eaten.
Are my feathers shining, or
are the thorns sticking to my soul?
