Colors

Written by: kathleen stevens

Look deep within me, where colors rest;
Silent loveliness of maiden white tulips,
Yellow velvet roses glide across my memories,
The blue bird sings a blissful tune,
Young desires of games in adventure still plainspoken,
Red wild flames persist to cultivate my longings,
Faith’s triumphs brought unsullied tomorrows,
I carry the warmth of a seasoned heart,
A teller of new courage, my muse, my poet;
I gaze transversely the valley green,
What need is there for such expression
When eyes behold God’s finest daybreak?
Blue and crimson sky alongside morning’s dew drops,
Raises her golden arms to earth’s realms,
Her brown earthy incense filling my nostrils,
Leaves on trees beholding shades of green,
Gilded silence of the glistening snow-covered mountain peaks,
Turquoise lakes sparkling in tranquility,
Colors deep within me…
