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!!!!

"When everyone realizes

We all grow from

The same vine." i can't even begin to describe how brilliant & beautiful this poem is. one of the my favorite things i have read on here. tears of pain that blur the vision, & blur the people, making them into a beautiful kaleidescope of colors. there is such unbelieveably amazing imagery here such as
"These sidewalks were once
A path to heaven's gate
Have become graffiti time
For the devil's artwork" & such a deep and thought-provoking ending. this is amazing & going in my favorites.

Dale, the message is superb! I love this. It has a gentle, comforting push to it to draw the reader in. Makes for a very lovely piece. I love how you always write about humanity. I'm not so good at it myself, so I admire those who can write on the theme. Nice job! Thanks for sharing.

I like this even though I'm not sure how sidewalks were ever a pathway to heaven, but I guess anything is possible in poetry.

How beautiful this is Dale, a myriad of flowing prose that hits the right spot. It is so true, I wish that everyone could see what you see through tears of hope for a better future. We do all grow from the sane...er...same vine!! There is too much getting and not enough giving. Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr
Cheers,
Helen :-)
