In The Grey

image

A black and white text
Once vibrant
Read immediately
Quickly
Turns to grey
Letters on the screen
Blending
Into the monotony
Of a life
I reply
Black and white, with grey all over
Meant to inform
Nothing more
You read it
Searching for color
That simply is not there
Your response
Questioning
I reflect
On 20 years
My fingers tap out the response
Again
It is immediately
Dissolved
Into grey
No feeling
No color
Your reply
One last effort
To obtain
That
Which your world now lacks
A small piece
Of my rainbow
But I am fluid
Constantly disappearing
Unable to be trapped
Unable to be defined
By merely one color
Your eyes struggle
Trying to focus
On those final few words
Pausing
You look up
Hoping
And again
Your world delivers
The constant
Overcast clouds
Your sky
Forever dark
Living
In the Grey

The ant….

Sometimes

My mind

Goes blank

Telling me

Be silent

Let everything

Slip

Into the background

Disappear

Slowly

Refocus

The world

Continues

To buzz

My head

Is silent

I smile

From the inside

So peaceful here

Listen

To nothing

Where?

Today

Sitting

On a curb

It is sunny

Warm

There is an ant

Wandering

Aimlessly

Around

I watch

Beginning

To feel

Content

He decides

To go

Around

A patch of grass grow

Around

A hole

Down

The steep curve

Of that curb

His pace

Consistent

Occasional redirection

His choice

If he ponders

It is

The slightest of moments

Moves on

No one

On a path before him

No one

Following the path behind him

An ant

The sun

The sidewalk

Simple

Uncomplicated

Peaceful

Fulfilling

This moment

Reminds me

I

Am the ant
