Color My World

Our host Judi Opager encouraged us to write a Perspective Poem today. 


Color My World


I sit at their feet

a warm foot bath

speaking my own language

they rarely understand, 

coloring their world

in shades of their choosing

giving my full attention 

to every detail. 

We exchange few words,

mostly gestures.

They put on their shoes

open the door

and walk away-

leave for weeks-

but they’ll return

when the color fades

when life chips and

peels the artwork

on their flaking canvas.
