Angel - Poem by Simon Collins

I noticed a rainbow today
But kept it to myself
It glittered on a fishes skin
As a fractal of the sky

Life and death love to dance
As I gut this creature clean
And so it goes on and again
Life is gone all the same but shimmering

Sometimes Success will dance like the stars
Joyful in its lusty high
But in the dark and in the still
I weep for those who fail

    In my heart, I weep for those who fail too, and also pray for them. Love the compassion that reaches out in that verse. Blessings to you. (Report) Reply
