Kaleidoscope - Poem by Richard Theze

By twists and turns
Tiny fragments like
Coloured glass combine;
Create random
Uniform arrangements:
Pattern perfect, almost,
Being in part,
Nothing but reflection -
Self-mirroring;
Constantly changing
Sequences
Of mosaic images
That make,
Break formation;
Align the halves
To face one another
Around an axis;
Ordered and symmetrical,
In pursuance of preservation
That equilibrium
Might always prevail.

    That equilibrium
    Might always prevail. These words i liked.

    I think this is a great poem. You do a nice job of mimicking a kaleidoscope using only your carefully selected words. This is a vivid poem with pretty words. The last three lines complete your poem with just enough summation without overdoing it. A great poem. I like your writing (Report) Reply

    Thank you Pamela. I am currently interested in poetry that observes balance and patterns in the world.
