The Peacock and the Pigeon

Did that catch your attention? I wouldn't blame you; it's a rather aesthetically pleasing sight. The peacock is a beautiful, graceful creature whom many are fascinated by. 

Now take a look at this:

A pigeon. It's not nearly as magnificent as the peacock, is it? One would be mad to claim that it is more beautiful - or would they?

While the peacock sits on the ground, the pigeon is in flight, freeing itself of any tension. While the peacock's beauty masks how dull it really is, the pigeon's plain appearance masks how charming it truly is. One bird stands on earth, never achieving its dreams; for what is a bird without wings? The other soars in the sky, finally finding paradise.

Now the choice is yours to make: What is true beauty?


  1. That's certainly the nicest pigeon I've ever seen! Beautiful images, I love birds. :)
    Anyway, thanks for the comment on my blog - we simply MUST adventure to the big city lights one day.. Name a date and New Yorks the place! ;)

    1. Ahaha, really? xD
      No problem =) How about when I graduate and get a job? Lol but I'd love to! =D

    2. Haha, sounds like a plan to moi! We can feed the NY pigeons in the park too - if you're into that sort of thing! :P

  2. peacock is generally deemed more beautiful because of its' elegance! birds are all beautiful :)
