kaleidoscope

through a tiny lens held firmly with hands eyes gaze in awe.. with a simple twist colours explode harmoniously bright, sparkling,blinding.. the colours are stunning so vivid, so alive with truth as in life.. this ever changing vision is but broken glass shards not whole, not complete.. simple, plain, tiny pieces they don't fit, they don't belong different shades, different sizes.. fragmented, swirling on command no direction,they stop; at one's touch and through this seemingly disconnect.. therin lies their beauty for these tiny glistening pieces imperfect jewel tone shades, dance; together.. revealing the essence of life, humanity and all who breathe for they gloriously join; naturally.. to inspire joy, excitement, wonderment the green piece could be a used wine bottle tiny violet piece from a castaway vase.. regardless of their origin these magnificant, illuminating pieces unite as one and magically dance.. with truth as in life beauty is as beauty does fusing together, naturally, effortlessly.. kaleidoscope.. broken shards now glistening jewels the spirit of every man, woman and child is part of this most magical creation.. for every size, shape and gorgeous hue is us; in every race, age & size coming together, to create, to inspire.. tunnel vision seamlessly vanishes as eyes are opened; captivated at the wonderment, joy and harmony of.. becoming one; beautifully and with faith.. kaleidoscope.

Excellent, Lynn!! The descriptive beauty of the kaleidoscope is already an achievement in itself, but the metaphor that follows takes it to an even higher level! I too go for a fave and top rating:) Regards // paul

Oh Lynn, a metaphor of such breathtaking beauty in this poem. I guess you could say I am living the life of acceptance in my marriage to a Hawaiian/Chinese man. My mother in law spoke English, Hawaiian and Chinese fluently. Our families welcomed our diversities. I hope that one day race won't matter. You have expressed your divine spirit in this lovely poem that is an instant Fave for me. 7+ Blessings, Connie ; )

They say that rather than being colour-blind we should, instead, celebrate the differences. That's what I got out of this poem. Nicely written.

Oh Lynn I wish this could be viewed by all the people in the world and then maybe we could find a way to unite and have peace - the simplicity of a child's toy has created a masterpiece of a write - a 7 and fave. I had a kaleidoscope as a very small child - I used to call the little shards 'pinkles' you have unlocked a wonderful memory:-) hugs jan xx

Hi Lynn, this is an exceptional write. A melodic song singing into the heart of the reader. Beautiful content and wonderful flow. The dream of your words becomes a wonderful song of light. This is a magical write Lynn, excellent in its concept. A Kaleidoscope of life laid before us. So many superlatives can be used for this piece and i only come up with excellent. I am sorry for this. This has to be a seven and a fave, Hugs....Mike. XX
