- Be like a peacock and dance with all your beauty.
- One day you’re a Peacock, the next day you’re a feather duster.
- Be your full power.
- Turkeys are peacocks that have really let themselves go.
- Happy Birthday to a magnificent creature.
- Shake your tail feathers!
- You’re all the colors!
- Strut your stuff!
Everything in the universe has a rhythm, everything dances. ~Maya Angelou
A peacock escaped from the Central Park Zoo and wandered around the city. Either that or I just saw a pigeon on his way to a gay pride parade. ~Jimmy Fallon
It dances today, my heart,
like a peacock it dances, it dances.
It sports a mosaic of passions like a peacock’s tail,
It soars to the sky with delight, it quests,
Oh wildly, it dances today, my heart,
~Rabindranath Tagore, selected poems, 1986
So don’t be afraid to let them show
I see your true colors
And that’s why I love you
Peacocks were once kept as royal pets, a spectacular creature with iridescent blue and green coloring, long shimmering tail feathers with distinctive eye markings and a crowned head that makes him look like a bejeweled invitee to a royal ball. Today their brash, awesome presence graces South Florida and Mexico for all to enjoy.
Vision, Royalty, Spirituality, Awakening, Guidance, Protection, Watchfulness and Vanity. In mythology the Peacock tail has the “eyes” of the stars. In Hinduism, the bird is associated with Lakshmi who represents patience, kindness and luck.
When a peacock fans his iridescent plumage for the ladies during mating season, his feathers quiver, emitting a low-frequency sound inaudible to human ears. Depending on whether he wants to attract females from far away or up close, he can change the sound by shaking different parts of his feathers.
Party tip: the intricate laser-cut feathers create beautiful shadows. Put a light behind the card to project the feather pattern on a wall!
Give this card to someone you admire! for a birthday, a celebration, an awakening.
