Shadows of desire - photograph by T Newfields
Shadows of desire
color our lives.

"I want this."
"I need that."

Each desire
subtly tints
the hue of our mind.

Some color themselves
with ruddy shades of passion
Others with purple tints of nobility
Many color themselves with gold or silver
& a few with the darkness of ennui.

Can we ever be free from color
as lucent, transparent beings?

Can we quiet all petty desires
& for a few moments
transcend ordinary ceilings?
