Colors fade (a poem)

A few quick thoughts that came to mind this afternoon while waiting for an appointment…

Colors fade
where the light
comes through the window

Colors fade
pigment thinned
exhausted or distilled

Colors fade
with the well-worn something
cherished and comfortable

Colors fade
drowned by the light
the camera doesn’t keep out

Colors fade
with the sunset
disappearing well before night
