Colour and Light



and light

stands alone

often in the wilderness

the boundless plains

the culture of different peoples

The colour

of a land

of the wildlife

the people

are the constant

like a beacon

colour and light

like life itself

cannot be diminished


This poem was inspired by travels in Kenya and Ethiopia

The colour and light of the animals

The People

The Land

  1. Empty Nest Adventures – I live in CO with my husband and we are recent empty nesters. We love traveling, trying new things, and pushing ourselves outside our comfort zones. Family time is very important to us, so we still do a lot with our two sons, even though they've flown the coop. I welcome any recommendations for new experiences, and I hope I can spark some ideas for you too!

    Very nice!

  2. lovesdeepwaters – I have a story to tell. Perhaps someone needs to hear. I believe in the power of love, forgiveness, and grace. I believe in keeping the faith no matter what. And I still believe in "Happily Ever Afters".

    Absolutely gorgeous! I fell in love with the words. Then I read the inspiration and loved it even more. The photos are stunning and I love the colors and light. My favorite thus far!
