Hold Steady

The morning breaks
 like a tidal wave
 dashing my life's plans
 upon the rocks
 spraying my hopes into the air
 like mist droplets,
 uncatchable,
 dissipating.
 I stare after them,
 longing for what
 never materialized
 only to see
 a fine array of colors
 illuminating through the
 rainbow-prism mist
 pooling on the surface
 of my eyes.
Joy is hidden in seeing 
the beauty of the light 
that springs forth 
from what is lost.
