Beautiful Form Watcher


Dear Kaleid Women,


Happy rainy Wednesday to you Atlanta ladies! We hope you find a way to either settle into the cozy or to happily anticipate the coming fall beauty.


At Kaleid, we endeavor to see ourselves, others, and our community through new lenses--embracing life’s shifts rather than resisting them--knowing that transformation always involves change.


Our name, Kaleid, is connected to the image of a kaleidoscope, a playful instrument that blends sight and light and color so that shifts yield unexpected beauty. As we say on our website “when life shifts, new beauty appears.” The etymology of the word “kaleidoscope” involves three Greek words that mean “beautiful form watcher.”


During our Foundations circle a couple of weeks ago, we talked about this idea and applied it to our own reality and desires. One of the Kaleid ladies who was with us, Lucy, wrote a poem that we offer to you today.


May you sense in Lucy’s thoughtful words the invitation to find beauty in life’s shifts. And, may you know that Kaleid is here as a space in which you can walk with other women who are looking for beauty in the turning, too.

Form

Watcher

These shards are

Always falling

Always rising

Swirling together

In that great shape

Called “Circle”

Ever moving

Ever changing,

Each moment

Altogether unique,

Each moment

Its own beautiful form

A whole world

Contained within

A small

and

Simple

Tube

If it weren’t for

These two, tiny openings:

One for

The light,

The other for

My eye

I wouldn’t be

A beautiful

Form watcher;

I’d be

A watcher of

Something else entirely

Kalos

Eidos

Skopós

May God make me

A kaleidoscope

With you.


Have a great day, friend. Thanks for being a beautiful form watcher.


Gratefully,


The Kaleid Team
