indigo

humanity is a fine art
a palette of desires
uncovered truths

our souls
an intricate tapestry
each thread
serving a different purpose...
symbolizing
that stolen kiss...
a hard fought victory...
the loss of someone dear...

yet often we realize
we're missing that one
special color...
a rich indigo
or a fiery red
colors whose absence
leave our fabric
incomplete

the air was cool and breezy
the day I discovered my indigo
the brilliance of its hue
like no blue
I had ever seen

I gently wove that thread
into my tapestry...
the pattern
at last
was complete.

Intense.

Some of the worst moments in my life have been determining causes of some of the best things.

I don't know that the pattern will ever be "complete," though.
