Life Is This and Much Much More
written by: Anne G
Is life really black and white? Are there areas of grey? What of the spectral colors of the rainbow?
I have pondered these questions seeking a definitive answer only to come up with more questions.
Black is dark; white is light and grey, opaque. Then there is the...
Ruby red of pomegranates
Orange pumpkins in the fall
Golden yellow sun kissed corn
Greens of leaves and piney trees
True blue eyes and azure skies
Indigo waves of oceans deep
Violets, irises, pansies too
So you see, we see the world in hues of these.
Our eyes are awash in prism colors of refracted light, shades of grey and black and white.
The questions posed cannot be answered with a word or even two.
A cut and dry, this or that will not suffice because life is this and much, much more.
I write because I am:
Driven to distraction by the inequities of the society in which we live.
Motivated by cruelty, abuse, ignorance and indifference.
My intention:To poke, prod and provoke!
