    Prism colors,
    Splendor bright,
    Dance perfectly in size.

    Ever turning,
    Ever churning,
    Bring beauty to the eyes.

    Crystal planes
    Of rainbow bright,
    Adheres itself within,

    Gently knocking,
    Gently rocking,
    It contents with a spin.

    you turned it so poetic, I would think most people see kaleidoscopes
    as objects of wonder but they couldn't slice it apart so eloquently,

    you made this poem a rather lovely kaleidescope

    Thanks for your comment Erik: :)
    I really strived to make this poem come to life. I think I have succeeded!

    Thanks dear friend.

    I use to have one of those cut glass prisms hanging in my kitchen window. Your poem brings it all back. You've described something beautiful very well.

    I don't really know what's a kaleidoscope, but I know this poem's great.

    Thanks Jolie: :)

    I thought since I had, had a kaleidoscope as a kid I remembered what it looked like. and thought why not write a poem about it's beauty. Thanks for your warm and welcomed comment.

    Kyanta: A kaleidoscope is a childrens toy that has tiny bits of colored paper and shapes in a long tube. The tube has several shaped mirrors inside to make the colored paper change shape when the end of the tube is turned. It has a small hole in the end where it can be viewed with one eye, while the other end is being turned. It is most beautiful.Thanks for the comment :)

    Blessings

    I'm sorry I mistook your Kaleidoscope for a prism - must have been tired. I haven’t looked through one of those in a long time. Your poem describes it perfectly.

    A note of interest:

    The kaleidoscope, captured perfectly in your poem, has long been a favorite toy of children. Today the originals are one of the most sought after items, by collectors. Modern kaleidoscopes are built with beauty and style to lure the collector. Some come in gorgeous top grain leather cases, or polished wooden boxes of cherry, walnut and other exotic woods. A far different type then the cardboard tubes of yesteryear. There are thousands of assorted sizes and styles available.

    Thanks so very much Mango.. Misty... Jolie...and Sator:
    Your comments are always a joy to read. thank you for taking the time to read and review.

    Sator: I had no idea that they made such elaborate kaleidoscopes Thank you for that bit of info. I always thought they were so beautiful to look into. The patterns and shapes were breathtaking. And now that I know (thanks to you) they make newer ones I'll have to check some of them out.

    Thanks all of you. your reviews are gratefully appreciated.

    Blessings
