Black & White & Rainbows

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

I have walked the flat
gray plain of existence
that this third dimension
too often can be,
futilely exploring
the monotones of a
sadly forlorn place,
where each small
blade of grass shivers
apart in the landscape,
calling to the sky.

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

So I’ve left that place
to steadily climb a
majestic mountain,
and I’ll take no rest
’til I find all my colors,
that 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.
