In Prism

In Prism

A Poem by Richard Williams
"

The color of light.

"


Very often will the light separate
into magnificent streams of color;
oceans of hues have school within the glass.
Laser beams paint with pinpoint brush,
each stroke a radiant ray of rainbow.
Traces transcend even the black of space.

Photons dance in a chorus line of blue
until yellow ushers in magenta.
Reds all play violins in unison.
Purple parades out front in regal robes
looking through a revolving door at green
eyes on the face of an autumn sunset.

(Violet Purple: an Acrostic)

I love acrostics. They're fun to invent & U did a wonderful job here.
I particularly like the 2nd part w/ all it's physical movement. Colors definitely flow with gobs of activity. Ur imagery is very colorful ...
Fav phrases: Each stroke a radiant ray of rainbow, Photon dance in a chorus line of blue until yellow ushers in magenta ... Good job, RLW!

Beautiful! I loved the written picture you painted with the colors of the rainbow. I have to ask though, I can't understand the last line in brackets, (Violet Purple: an Acrostic). A 100/100 for a stunning piece!

Reds all play violins in unison.

I LOVE this line, LOVE it. I really enjoyed how you played with the colors, and in my mind it was such a kaleidoscopic show, from one color to the next.

What I enjoyed the most was you didn't just say "red and blue and yellow", but you described the specific color of the color, like "green eyes on the face of an autumn sunset." Brilliant!!

I really enjoyed this. Keep writing!

This is wonderful way of describing the colors in a prism or rainbow. It is creatively done and the line about purple is amazing.
