what do i see now
on this wide space of nature
the far distant reach of my eyes could allow
enjoying these vibrant prismatic
God’s creations right now

flowers of colors like a stretch of rainbows
a mile long fantasy floating in the burrows
those attractive green thorns poking out at the stems
could sting those wanting
to share their deceptive dreams

flowers, flowers, flowers everywhere
the horizon is a line of colors between water and air
flowering but forever are denied of fruits to bear
like a woman dressed in new feelings
dropping the curtain from pains

now i see the world is full of vain pretensions
under the masks hiding some guilty situations
but could flowers be some kind of a fix unfolding
the world knows
nothing could be in safe keeping …

Behind The Rainbow…

different colors that came into view
a beauty cheered by showers, sunshine and you
faintly colored sketch seen across the distant sky
enhancing the vast expanse of blue and white

bunches of showers and rays of sunlight
lighter prism colors starved for a heavier sight
more drizzling tears pierced by saddened light
brought a charming smile your face can’t hide

the reason why so faint its colors are displayed
in the heavens we lift our heads we’re not dismayed
maybe God doesn’t give his graces in full
the rest are stored behind the rainbow’s bend

ask not for all the graces to be given
some sweat and blood are shed for the rest of the remainder
unfair for Him if rainbows gained the brightest of colors
discover what’s hidden behind, “Please do the honors”

got hooked in my ear a whisper so gentle
strayed for awhile got lost in a circle
sounds vibrating and fear was instilled
i broke down awhile ’till spaces were filled

thoughts would leap from case to case
doubting views and notions, dozens of “what ifs”
the world is a wheel spinning slow in place
judge not my heart to be real or solidly stiff

voices emanating from here and there
awash with unheard silence and heeded glare
sailing across my mind finding its port
to dock and pick up new freight to transport

felt the sadness of voices now i hear
seeing pits of yesterdays filled with history’s tears
heart and mind have toiled in tandem hand in hand
rough chants of the past demand the current stand

Finding your own tendencies, characteristics, and interests,
you’ve discovered your personality that you can be out being quiet and introspective and still be a standout.
