Diamond Factory

The kaleidoscope art for Diamond Factory.

Diamond Factory

rocks became pulverized rocks
pulverized rocks became glass

no potential here, what a mess
is there no potential here?
can’t I learn from this?

a growing potential
if glass can be sand again

the glass that cut my foot
and the soft sand
together again

it hurts and I don’t want it to
it hurts, but it’s a diamond factory

rocks became pulverized rocks
pulverized rocks became glass

no potential here, what a mess
is there no potential here?
can’t I learn from this?

as the sand in the glass
meets the glass in the sand

the glass that cut my foot
and the soft sand
together again

it hurts and I don’t want it to
it hurts, but it’s a diamond factory

Poem: Searching for One Moment

kaleidoscope

(c) 12 Nov 2013 Windy Johansen

on this separate road
we’re crawling among the pebbles
among the sharp pebbles

on this separate road
we’re searching in this stale desert
in this stale desert

searching for one moment

you and I cry
and we cry and, oh
in crying we become

a fountain gushing
sadness is, sadness is,
an unfinished statement
sadness is, sadness is
sadness is not everything

and there will be a new day

in these desperate eyes, you’ll see
we’re changing into new people
into new people

searching for one moment

you and I cry
and we cry and, oh
in crying we become

a fountain gushing
sadness is, sadness is,
an unfinished statement
sadness is, sadness is
sadness is not everything

and there will be a new day

nevermind yesterday
searching for one moment
nevermind tomorrow
searching for one moment
nevermind our whole future
searching for one moment, one single moment

Poem: Beautiful Places to Wake Up

kaleidoscope

(c) 2013 Windy Johansen

Beautiful Places to Wake Up
warm light from candles
resting with calming light
each candle with its own place
each candle sharing its own light

such a beautiful place
so many beautiful places
to wake up, to find light

cool wind wraps around
flying with calming grace
each gust with its own place
each gust sharing its own life

such a beautiful place
so many beautiful places
to wake up, to find light

cold waves of the sea
taking my worried tides
each wave with its own place
each wave sharing its own gift

such a beautiful place
so many beautiful places
to wake up, to find light

Poem: Light from Simplicity

(I’m posting my poems again. They may be awesome, they may be terrible. But I hope they make you feel better. Or that they make you feel like writing something. Or both. Both would be awesome.)

Light from Simplicity
fluttering stars
made of paper

luminous, light from simplicity

green and gold notes
two inks, one form

colorful, light from simplicity

twirling stars
born to dance

luminous, light from simplicity

expressive notes
rainbows, so small

colorful, light from simplicity
