Human Kaleidoscope

Human Kaleidoscope

A Poem by The Rock And Roll Cowboy(REBEL WITH A CAUSE)

  

The moisture covering

            The window to the world

Are the tears in my eyes

            Clouding my vision.

To wipe them away

            Would be a mistake

For they make the colors

            Of the human race

Look like a kaleidoscope of love

            In childhood rhymes.

 

The only colors I ever see

            Through a clean dry pane

Are flashing reds and blues

            Following crimson concrete

From races always colliding

            To run one another over.

These sidewalks were once

            A path to heaven’s gate

Have become graffiti time

            For the devil’s artwork.

 

So I will let the tears

            Flow like wine

Down the window

To my soul

And pray that like

            A good wine

Peace and understanding

Gets better with age

When everyone realizes

            We all grow from

The same vine.

This is magnificent Dale!I Favorite stanza....
The window to the world
Are the tears in my eyes
Clouding my vision.
To wipe them away
Would be a mistake
For they make the colors
Of the human race
Look like a kaleidoscope of love
In childhood rhymes.

I absolutely love that stanza...A great piece of writing!!!!

We all grow from the same vine...what a gorgeous line. The entire piece is very compelling and sometimes we need to look at things through a different and softer lens. Refracted light can be quite beautiful.

your word brocade here is a wonderful display of how the language can relay spiritual information to the world~how it relates the universal emotions stitching us all together~

Very serene and lovely indeed. It had a beautiful ambiance to it and was a pleasure to read. I especially loved the last two lines, a real message there.
Well done!

I like this. It has a awkward flow to it that adds to the emotion in it.

Great wisdom in your words. Last line is the truth. When one person suffer in this world. We have not done enough. In a world filled with hate and war. I never met a man or woman in 40 plus countries I seen that wanted to die or lose their family. I pray one day the common folks gather and stop the profiteers of war and oil from controlling the world leaders. A outstanding poem.
