A wonder to behold, this kaleidoscope
kissing open meadows and hill tops
unable to touch but ever giving hope
a promise of old – made by The Ancient
of dreams unfurled- beyond this kaleidoscope
I see this rainbow punctuating rain falls
I watch as rain cascades slippery slopes
sweeping metaphors beyond its borders
this vision of molecular gas and isotopes
feeding the ether of hopes and musings
enlightening my soul, this kaleidoscope
