Purple's Platitudes

nothing but words …

true colors

17 February 2014

 

“You can lose sight of it all
And the darkness inside you
Can make you feel so small
But I see your true colors”

(Steinberg/Kelly)

 

 

I am not Ansel Adams mind you,

I cannot see the beauty in

black and white surrounding me.

Maybe it’s just Winter,

nothing but these shades

of nothingness,

monochrome,

lifeless,

dead.

 

I

tend to

become small,

see what I want.

I miss blues and greens,

yellows, reds, oranges,

and my favorite, purple.

Anyone can learn how to see,

but sometimes we lose sight of ourselves.
