Shadings and colors
…At the edge of perception
Seemingly . . .
Winking in and out at the edge of my vision. . .
Teasing me . . .
With glorious colors barely in or . . .
…Just out of reach.
These colors flitter in and out and about. . .
…Early in the morning as I walk. . .
Or just at the end of the day. . .
…As night creeps in.
I long to experience . . . drink it in
Watch the cavalcade of colors as they
Parade across the sky. . .
Explosions of red, yellows, ochres and orchids
…As I watch and experience them.
Experience them walking up at camp when I have
…Time to relax and watch . . .
Or sitting luxuriously at the beach
…Greeting . . . or bidding the day “adieu.”
Adieu. . Goodbye. . .
….But with that lingering promise of tomorrow.
Many, many tomorrows
…Of colorful dawns and dusks.
