Dreaming in Color

IMG_2109I dreamed that all was yellow
inside their windows
a pale meringue light
beamed in summer kitchens
morning, forever, morning

Girls in sweet sun-frocks
twirled lemon-laced skirts
for buttoned-up, tucked-in boys
The sweet-acid taste of first loves
hover above, yet un-dreamed

Awake now, and all is fading
tables empty, windows bolted
and with each loss, another color dims
into the graying of time
mourning, forever,
