backlit beautiful blur bright

Fire hydrant
traffic lights
marking paint demarcating two-way traffic
a graduation gown

one thing they have in common is their color
and the girl who is trying to make sense of it all.
Can we ever reach back into time when we were five months old,
only beginning to see past the shades of light and dark?

No one is ever really ready for change,
but still, it comes knocking uninvited.
Now is not the time to fear,
embrace your expanding universe and all the ensuing wonder we will discover.

Yellow screams danger, slow down,
yet it also whispers sunrises and new beginnings.
