Colors cross over

Mark cloutier 1972 (Kaneohe)

Colors cross over
To the other side
In vast and contrast
They envelope the moon
And fill the sun
In coordinated schemes
And bring it together
In its means and seams
The fabric of rainbows
Is woven into clothed light
As the darkness is empty
And void of color
As the waters are many
And a voice is as thunder
And the rain of colors
Fall to the light
Upon blue and sky
As the night sets in
And the day comes to an end
What is conceived is a dream
In the minds of light
As the eyes envision the colors
Of the world and the eternal
