The Ugly Peacock

Once lit vibrantly in the day
now my colors fall away.
Freezing wind tears at my skin,
embarrassed in front of all the hens.
Circling eyes of green and blue,
I'm left alone without a hue.

Never to be truly free,
hiding away, inside of a tree,
hoping they will never find
the one among them, that has fallen blind.
