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
