Synesthetic Time

Reading you
fires neurones
long ago left for dead.

My mind colours
a million possibilities,
and a myriad of futures
hover between a spectrum
of clearness and light.

Time takes on
the momentum of a surf wave
with decades morphing
into the turquoise depths
of a thousand centuries.

remains intimately bereft
of the experience
in a parallel life.
And death is a violent splash
in the moment of a rainbow.

I love that you measure time with explosive color.
And even make the prospect of death this dazzling kaliedoscope. Be not afraid.

Hi Leigh, I enjoyed this very much. It has an even flow with some interesting images to consider. The last verse is brilliant and love the colors. Take care,

Hi Bob, thanks for visiting, and I'm glad you enjoyed the poem. It seemed to just flow when I wrote it, unlike other poems I have written that have not flowed at all! Hope you visit again, Leigh :)
