Beyond the Rainbow

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

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


or like a sand mandala


scatted in the river of life

to resurface as a new version of the

same old same

but slightly altered
