Beyond the Blue


By Thomas DurbinPublished 3 years ago 1 min read

A description of self from the internal view

Brings to mind rainbows and diversity of hue

Red kindles the dances of fires raging in the soul

Orange reflects warmth and a blissful afterglow

Yellow for Dandelions and others oft' maligned

Green is for mother Earth hosting lives intertwined

Blue captures mood and color embedded in these eyes

Violet says you, too, may be a king in disguise

Together as one greatest strength is implied

Accepting of all and enveloped in Pride

A being transcending in universal bond

With the modern-day Rainbow and love that's beyond.
