Aside

A Rainbow in The Desert…

I saw a rainbow blaze the desert sky

The memory of, remains amplified

The colorful array gleamed perfection

For my attention, the heavens beckoned

My heart and mind gave a grateful reply

 

Against manmade structures and mountains high

A sight unexpected, that mystified

Beauty I didn’t know to imagine

I saw a rainbow

 

Rainbows were always in ample supply

When I lived among the rains’ lullaby

With rain scarce, spectrums can simply become,

Common accents, with amazement deafened

I’ll always cherish the power of light

I saw a rainbow…

Perspective: A Rondeau

Fotor01006232315

It is about perspective, our world view,

Influencing what we accept as true,

Reality, child of our believing,

With passivity we adopt meaning,

Self-centered focus sets reason askew.

 

Without questioning data we accrue,

Falsity and deception may ensue,

We are hindered by not truly seeing,

It is about perspective.

 

Looking at your canvas, upon review,

You will see the colors chosen FOR you,

Will your world be painted while you’re dreaming,

Or with eyes open, your view be freeing?

Cognizance of our thoughts is overdue,

It is about perspective…

This is my first attempt at writing a Rondeau.  Inspired by “Cubby” http://reowr.wordpress.com/, who has introduced me to some fun challenges.  This particular style was difficult for me.  I suspect that is because I tried to fit such a multifaceted topic into a the confines of a small box!  I’m hoping it makes sense! Thanks for reading!
