SHADES OF AGE
(11/16/16)

there's
the saffron
of youth

the sepia
of old age

there are
varying colors
of calendrical degree
in between

to us
however

within
the palettes
of our souls

our hues
seem very much
the same
throughout
the canvas
of our lives

so excuse us
if we splash
just a bit
of neon green
upon our background
of gray

the contrasting
stroke
may seem
immature

but
with the assuredness
of our art
we smile
anyway
