Colours


 


My mind is swirling


multi-layered hues of emotion


and debris


remnants of fabric from the past


unraveling, fluttering and drifting away


to a faraway place


in time and space 


lost but not lost


waiting for the opportune time


when all becomes clear,


weaving together once again


fuscia, turquoise, emerald, sapphire, emerald, amethyst-


magic-all


colours of my life, my time, my history


 


Forefathers and foremothers,


Quakers and pirates both


swirl through my mind


a calliope of history


what was and now is and will someday be.


possibilities regrets 


what could have been and is or is not


forever twirling, swirling high above the astral plane


my spirit, my guide will tell me what must be done and how


proceed if you can,


 


How many steps at a time


it is different for each one


on the earth


regrets, they are many


but you learn along the way,


it is all a process, so the saying goes


before you judge a [wo]man,


walk a mile in his[her] moccasins


therefore, the proverb goes


it never ends


 


even when the final breathe is drawn


and they lower us cold into the ground


enshrouded in walnut or teak


or go up in hot cosmic smoke


 it’s only the beginning


one more circle of life


one more beginning


just ahead


at the end of the tunnel


lies another rainbow,


another birth


spirits never die


they only re-incarnate


Peace to the earth

This reads like a long sigh of eternity. I find it compellingly spiritual and somehow mythical as well. Thank you for sharing this gift. Love and peace to you,

Regis
Reviewed by Andre Bendavi ben-YEHU 3/8/2006

This is a combination of circles and cycles of rings (SUBJECTS)
ontologic-spiritual... "Colours" of the rainbow of LIFE... -- there are many transcendental, teleological and psychological -- points in
"Colours" to be discussed... What I have read nourished my mind
and stimulated my Spirit on a dream of eternity now.

Please check the FIRST word on line TWELVE of “Calours” I read it
as “FUCHSIA”.
