Monochrome interrupted

Colours fade
winter's truth
displayed in whites
and blacks
and shades of grey.
The eye locks on
the joy of red
the almost blue
of drifted snow
yet in the monochrome
rainbow dreams
sustain a heart
through too many months
of brittle cold.
Lonely, yes
but in the vast
there is space
to hear
what summer's noise
crisp, fresh, clean
and straight to the heart.

There's a reason to be thankful in every season of life if we look deeper. Wonderful poem, Karin. Thank you.
