Black & White & Rainbows








Right, wrong,
north, south,
black, white,
which way do I go?

I have walked the flat
grey plain of existence
that this third dimension
can commonly be,
futilely exploring
the monotones of a
too often desolate place,
where each small
blade of grass stands
starkly in the landscape,
and it cries out to the sky.

And I have wondered –
If white is all color,
and black its absence,
what of all the colors between?

So, I left that flatland
and I’m climbing
a majestic mountain.
I will not rest until
I discover all the colors,
the grand view above
a too narrow horizon.
The trek is exhilarating,
the views are breathtaking,
and I’m heading for that
brilliant peak yonder.

It’s the place of my dreams,
where rainbows gleam
and eagles soar,
and my soul can live free.
