Fay Slimm.





Contoured, white-based, shyly secreted
colour glides imperceptibly 
as light mutates.

It fluctuates sways and flickers, unseen
until viewed, ether-screened
or split by rays.

Dancing in filtered hues dye materializes,
clarifies shimmering change 
to monotone sight.

Powered with red, curried in carmine rose
pink rides alongside
beautifully ripening aquamarine, streaks
of gold tinge yellow's eye.

Lavender superimposes itself on tangerine,
coppery ginger  
sheens spicy glamour into blue-indigo and 
becomes plum, meeting in azure 
as amalgaming  spectrum.


Translucent stain cuts thru' pastel's pale
edge to vibrate 
in dawn's prism of resplendent mystery 
as movement tints auras 
in psychic invasion and sunrise trembles
with chromatic resonance.
to those who by perception see change.


Releasing time to observe alchemy's live
unfurling in sky-scape or bubbles
of rain creates surprises of shade-shape
to humanity's black-and-white life,
so should we stand and stare more, up
grade wonder, be awed at
coloured horizons and un-glue our eyes ?

      as complex as they come, tho simply stunning as already said......

      even with these eyes your message cries out loud

      and I imagine those that can and those that want to see, will see it too...

            ANGELA HERE - Thanks FAY your posting is even more BEAUTIFUL than usual an elegant pictorial and poetical kaleidescope of COLOR ! You highlight Natures awesome display of colour all around us 24/7 and especially on BONFIRE NIGHT ! GOD is an awesome ARTIST and when he created Planet Earth specially to be the unique habitation of MAN & WOMAN he not only gave us FORTY SHADES of GREEN - BUT Forty & more shades of every other colour as well ! I say to myself - *What a Wonderful World* ! GOD also created Man & Woman with awesome vision - which enables us to distinguish a thousand shades (especially Ladies) - in 3D and in motion ! GOD also gave us a BRAIN that could record these scenes in colour & 3D. It is only when we really open our EYES and look around us and through a MICROSCOPE and a TELESCOPE that we fully realise just how AWESOME our Creator God really is ! Thanks for once again lifting us up onto higher ground - AMEN

            Blessings Peace - Joy & Love
            Yours ANGELA & BRIAN
