My Life In Colors by BJ Neblett

My Life In Colors

            When I was young everything was a friendly green. 1965 things started to take on a mysteriously intriguing purplish gold hue. By 1971 the world was opaque. As I passed through my twenties and into my thirties, the yellow of promise shone brightly. A dizzying blast of red hot love came and went in the twinkling of a soft blue eye. Turning forty five, smoky gray complacency tinted my life. For a time life became a pointless beige. Today the past is a brilliant unforgiving crystal clear; the future a hazy tawny sunset.
            I miss the green.
