Beautiful Illusion - Poem by Liilia Talts Morrison

Sparkling rainbows on the street
diamond studded pavement
rays of sun on broken glass
beautiful illusion

Oh, how glittering was love
brilliant from a distance
oh, how deep its slashes cut
as I shed resistance

Mesmerizing is the dance
light rays of enchantment
whether caused by pretty glass
or a love's entrancement

Neither did I dare resist
in my many travels
eyes and heart delighting in
beautiful illusions.

    Wonderfully rainbow sparks on street and rays of sun on broken glass create illusion mesmerizing the dance of
    light rays. Interesting and nice imagery is drawn here and this also expresses humor. Excellent poem shared.10
