Souls' Marks


The heat of passionate loves
     and courageous causes
Memorialized in poignant rainbows
     on cold, grey canvas
Tombstones
     marking man's everyday existence
In fleeting, flickering glimpses
     of heart and soul

Love the melodic flow of "Memorialized in poignant rainbows"and the train of thought both preceding and following it. Also, powerful comparison to a tombstone.
