What if there were no colors…
What if there were no colors,
our world in just black and white,
would you wake up each day,
thanking God for the glorious light?
No rainbow trout to slink through the blue,
no sunrise or sets in orange, purple or red,
no human differences in skin tone seen,
or deadly excuses for condemnation said.
Would you miss the peacock feathers,
hummingbird views from my window sills,
only oceans of black sea to drown me in,
no fall colors to flame the hills?
What if sunshine was plain old white,
or flowers were shades of grey,
would you still see the Glory,
God created for us each day?
I can’t imagine ever being blind,
missing the colors in a fresh wet rainbow,
birds, animals, insects, and mountains,
Dear God, I pray, we will never know.
