Kaleidoscope




Kaleidoscope

I stole your shirt,
remember?
The button down with
gray and white stripes.
It was yours and then
it was mine.
When I finally let it go
it was so soft and
faded to white
I nearly cried.
That gray and white,
lovely as a rainbow.
A kaleidoscope
of our lives.

  6. Great opening question with a cool tug-of-war middle part that really brought it all together nicely with the kaleidoscope image at the end.
