THE MANY SHADES OF QUIET
Aquamarine is the color I hear
When I hang suspended in the sea
The water above and all around
As the quiet embraces me.
It's an autumn glow of the candle light
I hear when I pray silently
The amber gold of warmth and love
That touch my ears tenderly.
Soft rose is the color of the newborns breath
mesmerized as I watch her sleep
I hear the pink of creation
In the love that I feel so deep.
Emerald green loud whispers sparkle
from the rain soaked plants and trees
and this quiet makes me stop to hear
Small crickets symphony
A rainbow of sound is just waiting
for all of our ears to perceive
to hear color is easy just listen
Just listen and simply believe.
