The soul of light

Through years she moved
Through the thickness of a rain
Never ceasing its demand
To saturate with darkness
Like a wilderness night
Devoid of life.
As she grew the skies cleared
Like wipers on cars
Back and forth her world moved
From dark to grey
Then back
Until one day the sun seeped through
The cracks of her illusion allowing
To let something new in
And the rainbow appeared
And she sat in awe
The majesty before her
As she reached out and stole the soul
Afraid of losing this piece,
This bit of colored glow.
She went through her days
Colors locked in pockets
Lest they slipped out to escape.
But hidden away they could not be
What their purpose required and
Leaving her in darkness
When the rain came again
Moving the sun to moon
She reached in to demand
That changes must come
Only to find
Empty pockets.
Her color had gone
Leaving her bereft
So very sad and she asked the sky
As the tears mixed with rain
“Why have you allowed this?”
Where did it go she thought in her head,
For surely I had locked it away
I did not tell a soul
I did not want to share
As it is mine.
A wise bird came to rest in a puddle
Drinking and splashing
And looked at her like some birds do
And with a chirp spoke “you silly child,
It was never only yours” it is for the whole
For the big world of souls to share”
And she looked down deflated
As the words touched her within,
“Yes, my friend, you are so very right”
But she did not know what now to do,
And the bird spoke quietly
“Close your eyes and wish good on the world,
And share a joyful noise of laughter,
Dance because you can”
So she held her head high and let out a little giggle,
Yes, I can do this
Yet nothing happened
So she did it again, a bit louder this time
And through that crack a light shone
And she danced for joy at the sight
And more came pouring through
Mixing with water a rainbow appeared
As the bird flew up
Then disappeared,
So this is how to keep the light alive
This is how to share the soul of a rainbow
And then she spun around
Welcoming that love
The light
And so much more.

I am a sometimes poet on a quest to master the universe of my mind. My writing runs the gamut of nature, off beat, life and basically the world as I see it through the windows of my eyes. Welcome to my blog. Sit a spell in your big comfy armchair or favorite spot and read for a while if it suits and don't forget to leave a comment to let me know who you are and all that jazz. Looking forward to what each day brings and catch you on the flip side of the stars. Peace and blessings.

      1. Here in Texas as well. I am getting some nice shots of clouds and sunsets. So nice here that I went out to dinner twice yesterday, once to grab a burger, once to be one for the mosquitoes.
