Sign of the Crystal Prism


It shimmers and shines
Of hues in different aura’s
Floating in beams amongst the glint

Red’s fire fever, or warmth of cheek’s blush
Emerald green envy, or maybe naive of the innocent
Sadness sits in blue, or perhaps spring ‘s Robbins eggs
Do you see only in black and white?

A prism like the hourglass
Always changing by manifest minute
As time selfishly slips yonder
Step from shadowy sands to seek illumination

The past could never stay in the past
It is needed as a final filter of future
For how else could one’s mind and spirit
Change self-image and sustain the sacred soul

Marina....beautiful words and images used here.  I really like the colors....made me think of a rainbow.

Marina,
       things always look different through a prism, don't they?  But it too reflects back to us the things that are in our life. . .

Excellent words, my friend. . .
