A colorful explosion,

a kaleidoscopic implosion,

a vibrance shattered amongst

the ends of the horizon 

and scattered across the galaxy

with its tinge appearing 

in every shade

of the sunrise and sunset

painting the crimson laced sky

in the wee hours of the day

the burst of the colors

those glittering and spellbinding

sending the vibration 

throughout the galaxy

in a frenzy only to be 

experienced by you and me

the way it has been layered 

and hidden in the strata

of the earth

and the rising from 

the core of its womb

that exuberance and the warmth

is carried by your smile

that little indentation in your skin.

  1. Great poetry. Really enjoyed the juxtaposition of the black and white image with the colourful shades of sunrise and sunset.
