I wrote this poem in response to a prompt from my IRL writing group. We were to write a poem that describes ourselves using the letters of our name.
Kaleidoscopic visions consume you as
Each turn of the tube brings you closer to
Yearning for patterns in red, yellow and blue
Anxiety is your chloroform
Awareness woven from threads of pain
Longing to be heard
Allowing yourself to stand naked because
Reticence is no longer becoming and then
Dressed in a flowing shift of consciousness
Your hands caress the fine fabric lovingly
Cherishing your new garments that are
Edged in patterns of red, yellow and blue

This poem was my very first post on this blog and also describes me:
These are a Few of My Favourite Things
and this poem is also about me:
You Will Know Me
