A few years ago while shopping with a friend; we came upon a collection of Kaleidoscopes. My friend and I spent ages peering through the holes at the ends of the kaleidoscopes into the colourful world within. My friend nudged me in the ribs and said, "I bet you could write a poem about kaleidoscopes." Never one to pass up a challenge, I went home and wrote a quick poem, which I then sent to my friend as a gift. This Christmas another dear friend gave me a kaleidoscope as a Christmas gift and I set my camera up to take a few photos of the "pretty patterns".
I hope you enjoy. :)
Kaleidoscope with your colours so bright,
You are best viewed when held up to the light.
Around and around and around again,
Your pretty patterns do they never end.
The beads inside falling all about,
You’re the loveliest thing there’s no doubt.
Who would have thought, I nearly passed you by,
But I stopped and took a look with one eye.
And a whole new world was opened up to me,
All I had to do was take a look and see.
