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!!!!

I think I needed this reminder, that we all grow from the same vine, even if we're not the same kinds of flowers.

I've read this three times and it moves me more each time. Read it aloud the third time, it almost sings its sadness, then moves on into its own discovered wisdom.

Such a wonderful post, Dale.. ' So I will let the tears / Flow like wine / Down the window / To my soul '... I don't know why but, these lines jump up and into my mind, more than likely to stay.

It's better to be dead and cool than alive and uncool
