Rose-colored Glasses

rosecoloredglasses

Subtle shades of pink

soften the edges

in a black and white world

 

Streaks of vibrant salmon

dance across stormy skies

in the midst of chaos

 

A rush of crimson

decorates chapped faces

in the coldest winter mornings

 

Cuddly carnation blankets

swathe crying babies

in the in-between hours of dusk and dawn

 

Sweet cherry Lifesavers

shared between young girls

in the gestures that comfort

 

Endless fields of poppies

celebrate the wonder of creation

in the face of sorrowful destruction

 

Rose-colored glasses

frame my endeavors

in all that I do

 

I live in a pink hued world

and leave the black and white

behind
