the colors


the words pour into my journal
in colors -
pink, green, purple, orange, turquoise, red

it is how life feels -
pink, green, purple, orange, turquoise, red

vibrant
full
abundant
abundant
abundant

are you excited to go?
they ask

i know i must go.

excitement is not the word.

must
is the word.

i must go
to Iraq,
to death?
to sorrow?
to hope?

but now i am focused on now -
the colors -
in my garden
in my life
(in my heart)

leaving feels
far off
but is only
5.
days.
away.

i know i’ll soon leave
i know i’ll soon return

will
the colors
be the same
when i return?

or will
black and blue
take over again?
