Shadows of desire - photograph by T Newfields
"I want this."
"I need that."

Each desire tints
the hues of our minds.

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

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

Can we quiet our petty desires
that blind us to
a transcendent tapestry?
