Posts Tagged ‘sadness’

.         (from 1966 – age 19)

At first I lived in black and white,

the nights were dark, the days were light

and in between there was a grey

that hardly changed from day to day.

Laughter sprang from shallow seas,

leafing elms 3-8-2012

my tears were trivialities.

I walked on by and couldn’t bear

the colors burning everywhere.

 .

But then one spring the blue-bells tolled

of leaves in green and suns in gold,

of hearts that pulsate ripe and red,

love burst in rainbows ‘bout my head!
