Indigo Child

Rainbow Children


Indigo Child, you arrive with all your gifts,
in tune with the accelerated vibration of this planet.
You bring light; you show us the way to hasten
the transforming consciousness the earth needs now.

To transforming consciousness the earth needs now,
you bring light; you show us the way to hasten,
in tune with the accelerated vibration of this planet,
Indigo Child, you arrive with all your gifts.

Ha! my first cascading poem, which seemed to develop itself on the screen with little assistance from me. Cool. 

Posted for Susan's prompt at Mid-Week Motif: Children. A topic I could write a dissertation about this week. But Wild Woman decided to give herself a break, and go for "Easy". Easy is good!

  1. Sherry, I have that painting in my living room. I always refer to it as "Children of the Future," as many of the children seem racially blended....and this happens more and more these days. I like the idea of an Indigo Child arriving with gifts.....we need them!

  2. Easy is good, especially when it is your easy, which to others could easily seem difficult :-)
    Nice shape too.

  3. This is fabulous! I didn't even realize both stanzas were identical but inverted, because I 'read' them in two completely different 'voices'. Brilliant!

  5. I like the hopeful tone of your poem, Sherry, as well as the idea that changes will come from a child. Great use of the form!

  6. Sherry,

    A wonderfully embracing poem, with hope in the new generations as its future. Their ability to lead, with an innocent wisdom.
    A great poem Sherry, especially if you were seeking to keep it short!!!
    Best wishes, Eileen:)

  7. I had never heard of indigo child before so I assumed you made it up and only looked it up on a whim. And found it! I want to believe in Indigo Child as a possible hope of a better future around the world. I love your cascade backwards and forwards. Like CC, I only noticed the symmetry on second reading.

  8. This is like a soft echo, so tender. Love it, Sherry!

  9. They're the perfect big-eyed subject for kitschy decorative plates.

  10. Congratulations on the cascade! It flows so naturally. (A daunting form, to me.) I like the sentiments too. :)

  15. Easy is good (but i think it is still exceptional!) i love the notion of the Indigo Child..made me think of Hinduism..also simply a beautiful, joyful and youthful colour!

  16. Nice form. Must give it a shot. The Indigo child is the child of the future.

  17. Indigo is such a spiritual color and your poem is filled with light and hope ... the children of the future, may they be blessed. I love the cascading form ... could also be a palindrome, I think. Beautiful, Sherry :)

  18. Yes it 'flows' so nicely, very spiritual.

  19. The idea is simple! So it is good! No much words needed, when hearts talk in silence... ~ Love the poem and picture too :)xx
