Shaman - Horse

Poem - Rainbow Bursting

“Rainbow Bursting” was inspired by a quote found on Tumblr: “I’m so cold, I wish I could dip myself in the warmth of someone who understands”.

Rainbow Bursting

I seek the warmth I don’t have
absent long before this day
forever dusk in shaded dreams
evoking less while wanting more

this request is put to all
or to the oracle beyond my veil
the first neglects by ignorance
latter knows the spell to cast

a vision owned by only one
delusion granted in solitude
a path worn between the hills
single steps made by my heels

when night resides deep within
the light it shines is shadow’s edge
the deep cuts are not seen
divine red in midnight’s realm

black on gray beyond the pale
ashen seeking more colors
when the former holds them all
a prison fortress of the soul

this will doom those who stand
alone without their common kind
spectrum from red to grape
with the rest in between

warmth is found in the heart
understanding reveals the dawn
awakening more than I am
rainbow bursting at long last.
