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?
