“Kaleidoscope”

            Chunks of experience
                        like cut glass   
                                    swirling and gathering
            sometimes clinking gently into place
                        jeweled piece by piece
            sometimes flowing with flood water force
                        flashes of light forming
                                    Diamonds
                                    Emeralds
                                    Rubies
                        Pricelessly unique
            Then changing yet again
                        Ooohs and aaahs
                                    Motion and Splendor
            Suddenly the light’s gone
                        the flow stops
                                    and the eyepiece gathers more of life
                        for another time
                                    another place
                                                another vision

Just a reminder that life, with all of it's experiences, gives us splendor if we pay attention to it.
