Fragile and transparent,
the bright colors lie to me,
projecting vibrant shadows
onto the walls of my consciousness.
They sparkle in the sunlight,
hope given form,
dreams given color,
dazzling in their perfection.
So much diversity,
each one unique,
all of them deeply personal.
I revel in their beauty
until the rock of reality is thrown
and my stained glass dreams
are shattered.
