On Office Work

On Office Work by Rose Sylvia

Blue light
in my eyes, glazed
over, seeing nothing
Reflecting empty space.
Gray and white and black
and opaque shapes shifting-
but one hundred colored
Rainbows of flowered
fields, floating butterflies
through kaleidoscopic
Meadows, twisting turning hues
Behind the eyes
Seeing nothing and reflecting
Empty space.

Rose Sylvia
