Shades of Life


Colors bleed
one into the other
the shift and blend
and become
the amazing living pallet
within and without
light kisses dark
olive caresses golden
snow white and brick red
touch and slide and surround
In the watching
becomes understanding
and in understanding
learning finds loving
and loving, beauty and light
Into the dark and silent
not quite dawn
in the stillness of the thicket
the world is all the world there is
and in the all and nothing
