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 
from monotone sight.

Powered with red, curried in yellow rose
pink rides alongside aquamarine
streaks to tinge carmine. 


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

      this aint heavy .. this is a light invasion .... amazingly described with the tools of her trade .. prism perfect in every hue described and displayed ...

        Taking on the challenge to poetically describe the most beautiful beginning of each day is no easy feat yet i was absorbed here re-reading several times for full effect.

        • Fay Slimm.

          Yes the challenge was enormous in trying to verse the changes from dark to light D.A. - however you found the read absorbing and for that I am humbly grateful.

        • Michael Edwards

          So beautifully described.

          • Fay Slimm.

            Am pleased the read hit you as beautiful Mike - such a challenging subject and wondered if I had been too verbose.

          • ANGELA & BRIAN

            ANGELA HERE - Good Evening Fay - Thanks for a delightful picture and discourse on COLOUR!
            White light as you know is composed of SEVEN COLOURS (R O Y G B I V ). Because these colours have different wavelengths they travel @ different speeds. When White Light hits a PRISM or a drop of WATER it splits into the seven colours of the SPECTRUM (RAINBOW) - R O Y G B I V !
            Thats the Scientific Explnanation - BUT - I prefer your DISCOURSE - cos its much much more Sensual & Poetic. Science is AWESOME but lacks EMOTION~ Except @ the point of DISCOVERY!

            Love - Joy - Peace
            Angela & Brian ๐Ÿงก๐Ÿ’™

            • Fay Slimm.

              Light fascinates. Brings forth all the color our eyes can perceive. Your prismatic poem, in colorful language tells us of the spectrum we see in life.You pen great words to bring us rays of hope. Loved it. - Phil A.

                  Thanking you ever so much Andy for your read of Invasion - light is such a great gift to us living on this marvelous planet that I thought it deserved my humble tribute.

                • L. B. Mek

                  beautifully written,
                  has me reminiscing a Sunny morning, forcing eyelids closed for a few more minutes as the Sunrays pelt eyelids with Iris shooting stars and a gentle smile tugs loose: at experiencing one of the simple wonders of life,
                  indeed, our chosen perspective is a key factor in those gradient shades of our life's horizons

                  • Fay Slimm.

                    I couldn't agree more with your perceptive comments on my few words of tribute to Invasion L.B. - - thanking you humbly for dropping by.
