How To Write Poetry: Kaleidoscopes

Updated on December 3, 2011


You had me at good bye
Time flies. I'm doing good.

Such a pleasant surprise
That your path and mine
Collide in kaleidoscopes

I'm ashamed that I took
You for granted
I hope you understand

That a man can grow
Your voice is tie dye
The hue of cologne

Still in a bottle
It smells good
With no where to go

I'm doing well
Tho' I often wake to
The scent of wedding bells

Wafting through shallow wind
I was afraid before
I heard shadows tip-toe

As tears fall from my ears
My eyes fill with your lullabies
Violins in the background

Painted in portraits
Play to the silence
Left in your absense

Don't be a stranger
Or close the windows
To your soul

Before I get
To know you
Nobody is perfect
The words on your

Cheek taste different
Only the mirror
Feels familiar

P. S. Wilkinson IV

      Hi Paschal!

      How all our senses work together for love! The broad spectrum of expressions are so well associated all coming from a main source- the beating of a red-painted drum, strong and waiting for someone to hear its hum.

      Beautiful "Kaleidoscope"!

      Great poem. The words "don't be a stranger or close the window to your soul" how powerful
