rainbows in the making

rainbows in the making

A Poem by ice_cubes
"

for the broken and the beautiful

"
it's the crown of the rain
adorning the earth with its rays
its beauty unfathomable
its tranquility among the dark clouds of unrest,unbelievable
isn't a rainbow incredible?

the rainbow taught me
it taught me the secrets of its magnificence
"beauty isn't an easy come thing it says"
"if you think shining is easy watch the diamonds get battered
if you think glowing is natural watch the gold ores melt

it takes both sun and rain to make flowers grow
and only the bent and scattered rays form rainbows
like rainbow rays we transverse new worlds outside the ones we're used to
we get bent , worn out and scattered
but we are rainbows in the making

we get beauty in our brokenness and our voice in the silence
its not until we get lost and confused that we find the way to go
its not until we are all alone that we find a place we belong
the day we fall is the day our feet understand what it feels like to get a good grip on the ground
and our smile will only get some shine after tears glitter our eyes

this is to the broken and the beautiful
who've got there hearts crushed once,twice or repeatedly
we'll pick up the broken pieces and make an art piece
we'll wear our scabs and scars like crowns
coz we are rainbows in the making

The thing I love about this is that it sounds like it's been written by a young person, full of honesty, openness, & giving us a glimpse of how life could be perceived, if I weren't jaded to an extreme degree by all that's haywire about the world. This is life as only a young person could view it. All the old codgers in my various circles are as jaded as I am, so it's refreshing to read from someone who can still believe that anything is possible. I love that your writing is not polished, it comes out a little jagged, like in conversation, as if listening to someone all pumped & just spilling it without over-thinking (((HUGS))) Fondly, Margie

when we look at a thing generally the first reaction is pen, paper, tablet etc, our brain weaves the construct of observation, the act of seeing is automatic much of what we perceive as vision is in fact filled in by the machinations of past experiences. (there is a connect here to my babble) what we see, how we see is I believe also bent and warped by our own emotional perception... now i'm not saying if we are in a bad mood we will see a frog instead of a tablet or if we are in a good mood we will see a rainbow in stead of a pen. But the skew of rays beaming into our visual cortex gets a flex or too by the emotional state of our reflections... This poem as you had made hint of in it... made me ponder a query I oft do and that is... what is the essence of beauty? After starting a poetry contest on the subject and asking many of my friends (and customers) there definitions of beauty. i wrote a poem about this lofty subject. the old conventional nomenclature is "beauty is in the eye of the beholder" always bothered me and what I found was beauty is actually and act participative... what and how we see is vastly controlled by our awareness the more we seek it the more it can be found! this may come across as silly (often i find that is usually the case) but the simple effort of opening ones mind and heart to the beauty that surrounds us in everyday mendacity the more we discover what we can put on that blank sheet of paper that is our consciousness:) this of course is just the bunny's opinion but that is what you made me think of when i read your poem dear Ice.

Wonderful poetry..... Really like this one.... Yes most of the time beauty has to pass through many twist and turn..... To appreciate some things true glory we have to acknowledge it's pain as well.....

real beauty stands the test of time
The words you used here and your writing really captured the beauty and magnificence of a rainbow, which I find nearly impossible! I love the message too. As they say, you can't have a rainbow with a little rain. Our scars really are what make us the most beautiful. (: Keep writing!

thank you!
' .. we get bent , worn out and scattered
but we are rainbows in the making

we get beauty in our brokenness and our voice in the silence
its not until we get lost and confused that we find the way to go
its not until we are all alone that we find a place we belong ..'

Some beautiful phrasing amongst these thoughtful lines. Finely spoken, finely presented, ice_cubes
Take care, keep safe.
