The Peacock and the Sun

The Peacock and the Sun were married and lived together in space. One day the Peacock looked down to earth and saw a beautiful young woman dressed in yellow. He was immediately attracted to her.  He told his wife that he wished to visit the earth.  She protested, but in vain. She cried many tears which fell on his handsome feathers.

When the Peacock reached earth he found no young woman, only a field of yellow mustard. He regretted his actions and tried to return to his wife. But it was impossible. From that time, at sunrise the Peacock flaps his wings trying to return to the Sun and at sunset he cries at his fate.
