A few years ago, the group, Chicago, sang the beautifil "Color MY World", which ended with "color my world with hope of loving you."
Sometimes your hopes are fulfilled. Mine have been.
After recent cataract surgery, the world looked brighter. As I thought about the real reason I sensed new colors eveywhere, this poem emerged.


     The Colors of My World
 Are you the arching rainbow,
Captured for a fleeting moment
In the prism of tiny droplets?
Or are you the prism
That creates the refraction
And makes the colors dance?
There are no answers, I know,
In such remote reflection,
But of one thing I am sure.
I need not search for rainbows:
My life shines light and bright
Because of the colors within you.

What a beautiful celebration of color, and of love!
I see your inspiration is everywhere. And you show us in such a gentle way to also open our own eyes.

A beautiful way to say 'I love you' to that special someone in your life.

those last three lines, Charlie, are
marvelous - positive and uplifting as
indeed is the whole poem;
i'm glad to hear your sight is brighter - well done!

stay strong and healthy
