The Colors of My World

I'm a writer, a poet, a dreamer. Born and raised in New York City. I now live in Daytona Beach, Florida. .


The colors of my world,
have become so much brighter,
since the winter snows melted away.
Out of the gray, white world came colors,
as spring came dancing along.
The skies turned into a brilliant blue
and clouds in many sizes and shapes,
came sailing along.
My mama’s voice,
whispering with the spring breezes,
up above it’s as blue as Egyptian skies.
Everywhere it’s a joy -
to look all about,
with crocuses of blue
and tulips of red.
Meadows of wildflowers,
nodding their heads,
beneath the sun.
Birds singing in chorus,
my heart feels so light
and my mood’s alright.
The colors of my world,
have sent the gray
and dreary days away.
Sunlight, like shining diamonds ripples,
upon the river,
ducks and gulls,
content and happy -
dancing upon the waves.
Rafts of ice heading for the sea,
suddenly the world -
has become a fantasy.
My smile so very bright,
rejoicing each and every day,
in the colors of my world.
