Circles of Light

Circles of Light
by Ismim Putera

I saw circles of light,
Through this concave glasses,
Rainwater refracts those sparkling light into a certain height,
Some are dispersed around the arc in verses.

Those circles overlapped on each other,
Produces a blurring glare of sight,
The more I glanced at one another,
The stronger the circles magnified!

One circle circumscribed one colour,
Some mixed two within its diameter,
When I tried to unwind the radii to make it paler,
Thousand of colours accidentally hued together!

More and more circles radiated in all direction,
Some were forced to stay within a row,
If I follow those path of light with no hesitation,
Can I see the colours of hapiness with no sorrow?

When I took off the concave glasses,
And look through the eye's convex lenses,
Why those circles of light loss a quarter of its border,
And none have glittering diamonds at its centre?

Poem of the Day

poet John Clare

I love to see the old heath's withered brake
Mingle its crimpled leaves with furze and ling,
While the old heron from the lonely lake
Starts slow and flaps its melancholy wing,
