It All Begins

Updated on August 18, 2010

It All Begins...

It all begins as a point of light,

               a spreading blush of blue;

Till soon the entire field is full

               with the iridescent hue.

 

Fickle, though: the slightest move

              does banish it;

                                    a blaring of reds and yellows appear.

 

Trumpet mutes come into play;

               and green evolves,

                                    spreading an earthly glow.

 

Colors shift and shift again;

                now showing:

                         a reprise of all,

                                          displayed in fractured array.

 

Now spider-web borders

               of black are into the pattern wove,

 

Till shifting and changing for all they are worth,

              (show-offs);

                          they cannot still a pattern repeat:

                                    each one, seen once, and then extinct.

 

Shifting and changing,

               all day, all night,

                          the glowing colors flow.

 

And in the crystals' falling shifts,

              I see the world,

                 hear it grind

                                to a restless, syncopated beat.

 

Still the colors meld and break and fall

                as I sit, staring

                                through my kaleidoscope of dreams.

    ...well it all begins right here with your wonderful writing style - and it's so very wonderful to hear from you - I sincerely hope all is well and that you are healthy and happy - you have such a great attitude towards life and living - at least I can pick that up in your writing - and believe it's your writing style in which you are truly a shining star and have carved out a poetic niche all of your own at the Hub.

    Thank you for your commnents - it really made my night here by LAKE ERIE in Ontario CANADA with my two cats Tiffy and Gabriel - please stay well and keep thinking those good thoughts.
