Beyond the Rainbow

Maya Ellenson is keen on creating unconventional poetry and prose, inspired by what the moment reveals.

Daydreaming

A new world is being conceived

to fade away

just like a rainbow


both seen and unseen


yet we get a glimpse

into what is taking shapes

and matter


to vanish


as this gator in the lagoon

I watch him submerge

as he senses my gaze

on his gator skin

unsettled


or like a sand mandala


intoned


scatted in the river of life

to resurface as a new version of the

same old same


but slightly altered
