Colors for the Day

If life was full of colors then each day would be a painting,


Dark and dreamy ones like Van Gogh’s ‘A Starry Night’ for a calm day


Flowy breaths of red for times when our hearts say what our heads cannot


Abstract ones for those days where no action makes sense


If we compiled a museum of paintings from each day in our lives,


There would be a spectrum of colors, 


And it would be beautiful.
