Kaleidoscope

Patterns of light. Manipulated internet images.

Kaleidoscope

What did you children do

days before streaming television programs ran?

The lad remembered,

Halting, before emphatically answering,

“I tinkered in the shed”.

Aphonic in exasperation the teacher

coerced a longer answer.

Boy bought to mind grandma’s psychedelic curio

found on a kitchen shelf

known to make uncommonly beautiful patterns

of light caught in crystals.

Fractuals recede to infinity – every twist.


An earlier work The Shepherd’s Song is read and explained here
