204. Thrive

I happened upon this incredibly coloured house when wandering around Toronto’s Chinatown the other day. It stood as a palate of bold beautiful hues amongst a sea of ashen grey and brown. It inspired me to write these words

Be bold, 

Be beauty,

Be alive, 

You know it’s not all live then die, 

There’s something in these eyes, I hide,

Ocular deceit. 

You know that all is well, at peace, 

When lifted our disguise, we see, 

That when we live in colour code, 

We know just how to thrive.
