Rookie (August 4 / Florida)

...The Meltdown


You saw her once
In colorless kimonos
And again
In agricultural greens
But did you really ever understand her?

Sauntering
Into that tiny crevice
Prismatic
Rainbows once
Glowed pristinely in the horizon

All
Perceived colors
Red, yellow, orange
Violet, blue, and green
Arc-ed ethereally

A spectrum
Where long waves
To the right
Serenade and sooth
Harried souls

To left
Rapidly cast
Short waves
Marking forces
Of ancient darkness

In time and space
She walks
Her shadows
Exist concretely in history
Chameleons’ very energy

You saw her once
In colorless kimonos
And again
In agricultural greens
But did you really ever understand her?

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

I heard the bells on Christmas day
Their old familiar carols play,
And wild and sweet the words repeat
Of peace on earth, good will to men.
