Prismatic You

Es­capril 2019
Prompt: focus on the color


Pris­matic you,
Red, yel­low, green, blue,
Iri­des­cent shad­ows join on em­phatic cue
Your chro­matic form to one dra­matic hue:
Bizarre, un­fa­mil­iar, ex­otic;
Hyp­notic opales­cent nar­cotic
Now a stranger to my sight:
No longer com­pli­cated, chaotic,
You are my sun­shine:
Bor­ing, re­li­able, beau­ti­ful –
Boun­ti­ful white light.
