Monochrome Mirages

I cherish old photos in monochrome They seem more poignant and focused Had they been in colour they would be lost In dazzling cobalt skies and lapis lazuli waters Turning my world into monochrome I often wish I had a switch in my brain Stopping all these colourful distractions To focus and absorb to cherish life Like a top spinning my inner self to dizzying motion Readying my heart to absorb and cherish the colours of what I see with my eyes mind and soul Slowly seeping over and into my monochrome mirages 1.04.2021 Contest: Cherish Sponsor: Constance La France (Second Place)

Hi Carol, yes I think those old sephia photographs have more soul, the colors often gloss over what is underneath, this is an excellent poem for the contest~
