quick bright things
from outside in
to inside out
like apples ready … dropped
and gravity implied
they slip receptive
to our mind from
this is that to …
perhaps … that is this
like rainbow shades
from sunshine rain
that prismed thought
so then was found … eventually
a frequency in starlight
yes, we think quick bright
from outside in and inside out
now … then … this … that
life is a quick bright thing
think this world
to the next

Very pleased you read it aloud, Sharon. I used to voice my poetry … I think I miss providing this, yet it’s better if readers access this other dimension on their own. Smiles …
