My Awakening


It lay dormant,
This rainbow inside of me...
My Laughter was mislaid
So deep within,
It was forgotten.
Then you touched my life.
I laughed and remembered,
Birds are suppose to sing!

    I like the rhythm of the way this reads - flowing. The fresh and original idea of a rainbow within, and the surprises of what happens next also pleases me. At first it reads very simply, but as one thinks about it there are different layers of meaning. A rainbow exists when there is some rain (weeping and sadness) in the air and the sun is shining somewhere (dormant or hidden?) . The possibility of joy is so deep within it takes the full sunshine (that special person) to wake it up. And the coming is a surprise, unexpected, that you are laughing and forgetting to sing. Your metaphors are will chosen and add the deeper meanings. (Report) Reply

Black is the beauty of the brightest day,
The golden belle of heaven's eternal fire,
That danced with glory on the silver waves,
Now wants the fuel that inflamed his beams:
