The Color of Fruit


The photograph I took

with the colors and the fruit

was my favorite;


if only colors could always be so bright

grass so vibrant in green

sky so crisp in blue


that’s the word we use for skies, right?



And what is the sun

if not already bright, but

couldn’t it be more flaming


more burningly yellow


I heard that people do not always dream

in color

that dreams come in black-and-white

like an old TV screen


And my own dreams, I cannot picture

cannot remember if they come brilliantly

or all in dull grays and shades


Maybe I am thirsty for something

more vivid. Maybe

my subconscious has selected fruit

to be the color of my dreams


Maybe I am dreaming now
