Colors make the dark one’s deep and lets the purples run. Yellows, oranges, greens and such prefer to get some sun. Monochromes stay back at home with only black and white. Sometimes grays come out to play, then all becomes delight.

Voices telling me what’s true, What they think that I should do Are like illusions passing by, Cloud reflections dropped from sky. Water waves are mostly smooth And sunshine sets about to soothe Even they when wrong feel right, Secrets sealed in full moonlight.

Ever mindful but of what and why? Forever comes tomorrow. Hear the song? I don't know all the lyrics but I'll try To let it lead me home and sing along And trust when I am weak that it stays strong.
There’s always something more that I could do. There’s always some small dream to tarry through. There’s always some old treasure I might find In hidden memories. Were they all true That mercy sang with kindness to my mind?
There’s reasoning that wants to go nowhere. It circles back to check if I am weak To tempt me with its nonsense, if I dare, And if I don’t suggest that I’m too meek Or impotent to take what it would seek. I walk and hope each step leads to the goal. I like those geese, obedient and whole. I like the trees who don’t have much to say. I like contentedness without control Unlike this devil circling me astray.

A freckly face does not disgrace The simple beauty of her eyes, Two stars who watch the midnight skies, Two candles blinking warm replies, Two windows opening a door No one noticed there before. Observe. Let beauty emphasize How tiny freckles frame her eyes.
