Kaleidoscope – A Poem #Poetry #Writing

This stubborn pen in hand

might as well be broken

For whose crossed eyes

can see the indescribable beauty

that sits so delicately on

the very tip of their nose?

The challenge of

writing when happy

knows no boundaries

and ever so quickly

turns to confusion as

the kaleidoscope begins

to grow and spin

into something it once wasn’t

About Gretchen McIntire (formerly Leary)

I am 34 years old, I live in the Raleigh area, and I am writing from the perspective of an individual with Asperger's Syndrome.

    nothing last forever….and soon enough the kaleidiscope turns….take happy when you get it though and dont fear it coming or you will miss the moment

    if it turns into something new it will be still something beautiful.. though the changing process is always tough and makes us feel insecure… good to see you gretchen!!
