Poems for the Smiling Heart

Planet Earth

At the break of day
an exquisite rainbow, iridescent and complete,
fell to the earth.

Shards of colour melted.
Red hurried towards the last of the roses.
Orange and Yellow tucked themselves inside autumn leaves
Green slipped silently under the dry grass.
Blue plunged eagerly into the sky-filled sea
Violet, radiating kindness, flowed blissfully
into the crystalline crust.

This is our Planet Earth:
a whirling prism of loveliness
a sweeping spirit seeking
to illuminate the unknown turnings
of an expanding universe.
