    i get lost sometimes
    in the curve of the rainbow
    the colors clear then swirl then clear then
    i forget the stress of work or relationships or
    i get lost sometimes
    in cloud pictures cats, dogs, birds
    prophets lying back reading mystical tomes of
    i get lost sometimes
    in the songs of hummingbirds
    chirp cheep chirrup chirp cheep cheep chirrup
    i get lost sometimes
    in the smell of cala lilies
    remembering past spring equinoxes
    and easter egg hunts and lakeside barbecues
    i get lost sometimes
    in the eyes of a friend
    excited as he tells me he thinks
    he's found the one to make him complete
    i get lost sometimes
    in the cries of neighborhood children
    playing my games, hopscotch, double dutch, and, keep away
    i get lost sometimes
    in the wonder of me
    of who i was and am and will one day became
    i get lost sometimes
    in the saga of kingdoms lost and reborn
    cush, and zimbabwe, and the hills of diwali
    i get lost sometimes
    in the idea of completion still sought
    but guaranteed
    i get lost sometimes
    in the faith i thought i'd lost
    but came to find i still have

    beautiful, lyrical and positive. too many times we miss out when we don't get lost like that. the last lines provide the key to the rest... without the faith, we wouldn't notice the beauty. it swept me up, and i loved your whirlwind.
